Drone Rescue Systems, a leading developer of parachute rescue systems for multirotor UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), has partnered with Unmanned Systems Technology (“UST”) to demonstrate their expertise in this field. The ‘Gold’ profile highlights how their innovative drone parachute systems can be used to ensure the safety of people and property, and to protect expensive aircraft and payload equipment in the event of system failure.
Drone Rescue Systems’ UAV parachute products are based around a simple electrically-triggered catapult mechanism that requires no servos, pyrotechnics or consumables such as CO2. With no compressed gases or explosives, the drone recovery systems are easy to transport or travel with and require no special licensing.
The system is completely autonomous and independent from the UAV flight controller and other electronics, continually monitoring parameters such as descent rate and pitch and roll angles. Deploying in milliseconds, it activates even in the worst-case scenario when autopilots or radio links have failed.
With minimal parts and a rugged carbon cage enclosure, the lightweight system makes minimal impact upon the SWaP (size, weight and power) budget of an unmanned aircraft, and is easily attached to and removed from the UAS via a simple bayonet-lock mechanism. LED light and acoustic status signals provide notification of drone takeoff as well as deployment of the parachute.
The re-usable parachute can be repacked within minutes, allowing you to get your drone flight-ready again with a minimum of hassle.
Drone Rescue Systems’ products provide a critical extra layer of safety and security that is crucial for advanced commercial drone operations such as BVLOS (beyond visual line of sight), package delivery, and flights over people.
In addition to protecting your expensive investments, they also significantly reduce risk of endangerment to public safety, and increase your chances of being approved for operational waivers or flight certifications. As the commercial UAV industry continues to grow, the parachute systems can also help you achieve lower premiums or deductibles from drone insurance companies.
Drone Rescue Systems offers a variety of drone parachute systems designed for specific DJI models or for particular multirotor MTOW (maximum takeoff weight) ranges. These include:
- The DRS-M210 for DJI Matrice 210 V2
- The DRS-M300 for DJI Matrice 300
- The DRS-M600 for DJI Matrice 600 & 600 Pro
- The DRS-5 for MTOW of 2–5 kg
- The DRS-10 for MTOW of 5-10 kg
- The DRS-15 for MTOW of 10-15 kg
- The DRS-25 for MTOW of 15-25 kg
Drone Rescue Systems also develops bespoke parachute solutions for VTOL and fixed-wing UAVs, which due to their highly variable designs often cannot rely on standardised off-the-shelf solutions. The company has worked with a variety of different drone manufacturers and as a result is highly experienced in co-operatively creating new solutions for specific aircraft.
