ParaZero, a provider of provider of autonomous parachute systems for commercial drones and urban air mobility vehicles, has partnered with computer vision and AI flight technologies developer Sightec to provide a hardware platform to support safe operation and integration of unmanned aerial systems (UAS).
According to a joint press release, ParaZero’s onboard drone safety system, SafeAir, can be integrated with UAS and eVTOL platforms of any size, weight class, or airframe design. SafeAir continuously monitors a wide array of sensors and analyses flight data in real time to accurately detect a potential problem, autonomously activating a proprietary flight termination system (FTS) and deploying a parachute in the event of an in-flight emergency. Equipped with ParaZero’s patented parachute technology, SafeAir systems have been used to facilitate regulatory acceptance and enable autonomous beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) by providing a safety solution to mitigate ground risk in the event of an in-flight emergency.
Sightec’s NavSight system enables camera-based Visual Situation Awareness for 24/7 aerial missions, including vision-based navigation (GPS-free), landing and delivery site evaluation, detection and classification of ground objects, as well as 3D mapping and change detection for an aerial platform.
