The system, available from the end of July, provides protection for the drone in the event of a crash. Andreas Ploier, CEO and Co-Founder of Drone Rescue Systems, said: "With this new product, we are taking the natural step of securing commercial drone applications as well as police and fire brigade operations, since the DJI M210 V2 drone is used for many of these applications.”
The drone is used for inspections, protection and rescue services. For this purpose, some of the drones are equipped with cost-intensive cameras and sensors that require special protection in the event of a failure of the flight system. "Investments for these drones are sometimes quite high. Therefore, in the event of a crash, special attention should be paid to the protection of the drone as well as the payload," said Ploier.
The use of the parachute system simplifies the issuing of flight permits and approvals according to the new regulations according to EASA-Specific Operations Risk Assessment and ensures that all flight movements are recorded and stored by the electronics. In the event of damage, this data can be evaluated and, if necessary, passed on for clarification. "This feature can lead to lower insurance rates, depending on the insurance company. Because of these lower rates, the purchase costs for our parachute rescue system would quickly pay for itself," Ploier explained.
