For commercial operators, the ability to operate over, or close to, people is critical as it opens new verticals and business opportunities that were previously unattainable.
The FAA and other CAAs around the world have indicated that parachute systems that comply with ASTM F3322-18 are a good way to mitigate the risk of flight over people.
ParaZero’s SafeAir System is an end-to-end safety solution that is designed for DJI’s Mavic 2 & Phantom 4 Series (excluding Phantom 4 RTK/Multispectral).
The SafeAir includes the following safety features:
Autonomous triggering – the system’s independent computer monitors flight in real-time and deploys autonomously when a critical failure is identified.
Low altitude capabilities – the autonomous computer together with the SafeAir’s high-speed parachute launcher enable safe recovery even at low altitudes.
Mechanical flight termination system – to prevent parachute entanglement and laceration injuries, the SafeAir mechanically stops the spinning rotors.
Manual deployment option – via 3rd party remote control.
Audio-warning buzzer – reduces probability of impact with a person.
ParaZero is proud to present the only ASTM F3322-18 compliant parachute system for the DJI Mavic 2 and Phantom 4 series.
ASTM F3322-18 requires over 45 aerial parachute deployments with a 3rdParty Testing Agency. These tests together with the standard’s other requirements give operators and regulators the confidence required in the three performance pillars of a parachute system:
Effective and reliable in all failure scenarios
Rated descent rate:
Mavic – 12.8 fps
Phantom – 16.8 fps
Minimum flight altitude:
Mavic – 62.7 ft
Phantom – 62.4 ft
The Professional Kit offers commercial operators the features and ASTM compliance documentation that can be submitted to CAAs for operational waivers and approvals.
ASTM F3322-18 Documentation Package ParaZero provides the required product compliance documentation that meets the Transport Canada regulations for flight over people.
The ASTM Professional Kit includes:
ASTM F3322-18 declaration of compliance – unique per SafeAir unit serial number
3rd party testing report and video documentation from over 45 aerial deployments
Laboratory test results and other product information
