Ballistic Parachute Launchers

Our user-friendly spring and CO2 ballistic launchers create separation between the propellers and the parachute to ensure safe recovery.

All of our parachute launchers are optimized for compact size and minimal weight. Integrating a launcher bundle adds an average of less than 5% of the UAV’s weight. This allows you to ensure the safety of your drone and payload without losing flight time.

Premium Quality Drone Parachutes

We combine high-strength calendared ripstop nylon fabric with custom-made shroud lines to optimize for the least weight at the greatest strength while minimizing packing volume.

ASTM Compliant Trigger System

Failure detection for Drones, Fixed Wing, VTOL

The Sentinel Automatic Trigger System (SATS-MINI) provides an unparalleled ability to quickly and reliably detect a drone failure as well as the ability to guard against false triggers, making it safe to use with high energy deployment systems that use CO2 or pyro gas ejection.

Automatic Parachute Trigger System

ASTM Compliant Parachute Trigger System

Designed for both automatic and manual remote triggering, the SATS-MINI supports many configurable features to allow tight integration between the autopilot and the SATS-MINI system.

Additionally, the device can be mounted at any position or orientation on the drone.
