The PRS-M300 is a Parachute Recovery System (PRS) and flight termination system designed to fit DJI Matrice 300 RTK drones. The PRS-M300 is ASTM F3322-18 compliant with testing completed at the Northeast UAS Airspace Integration Research Alliance, Inc. (NUAIR) test site, one of the FAA-designated test sites. It features a field-replaceable Parachute Pod, coupled with an electronics module that powers the pod and a flight termination system that interfaces with the drone.
The system uses sensors to continuously monitor flight conditions in real time. Should a failure be detected, the parachute is deployed autonomously and non-pyrotechnically in less than half a second. An independent remote control is also provided for the option of manual deployment.
A lightweight carbon fiber and aluminum mounting bracket allows all components to be securely attached without interfering with the aircraft's sensitive GPS modules, and enables other payloads to be attached in a variety of configurations.
Each PRS-M300 kit includes:
- One Parachute Pod
- Rugged GPC protective case
- Electronics module
- Flight termination system
- Autonomous triggering System
- Attachment bracket
- Manual triggering device
- Electronics module batteries
- One year, three deployment warranty
- CAA & ASTM F3322 documentation
