Drone Rescue Systems is a leading developer of parachute rescue systems for multirotor UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles). Our innovative drone parachute systems ensure the safety of people and property, and protect expensive aircraft and payload equipment in the event of system failure.

We are the first European company to be successfully certified under the ASTM F3322-18 Standard Specification for Small Unmanned Aircraft System (sUAS) Parachutes, and have also been recognised by the European Space Agency (ESA) at the European Satellite Navigation Competition. We are partnered with a number of drone companies around the world, including Auterion, Coverdrones and Watts Innovation.

Drone Parachute Systems

Innovative re-usable design

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, our drone recovery systems are easy to transport or travel with and require no special licensing.

Drone safety equipment

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.

Essential drone safety for commercial and BVLOS flights

Our drone recovery systems 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.

UAV parachute systems

In addition to protecting your expensive investments, our products 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, our parachute systems can also help you achieve lower premiums or deductibles from drone insurance companies.

Parachute Systems for VTOL & Fixed-Wing UAVs

We also develop 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. We have worked with a variety of different drone manufacturers and as a result are highly experienced in co-operatively creating new solutions for specific aircraft.

Our general approach is to set up an initial meeting with our engineering team and perform a quick feasibility test. If this results in a positive outcome, we then move forward with further stages such as CAD models, and support you with integration and refinement of the design.

To find out if we can develop a unique parachute system for your VTOL or fixed-wing UAV, please get in touch.
