Why equip your drone with a Parachute Recovery Systems?

Adding a parachute recovery systems (PRS) to a drone can help ensure safety in the event of a technical failure or other critical problem during flight (extreme weather conditions, radio transmission failure, technical failure of the propulsion system, loss of GPS signal, etc).

The parachute recovery systems (PRS) can help cushion the impact and minimise damage to the drone and its environment during an emergency landing. It can also help protect people nearby in the event of a flight problem.

How does the Kronos Mini & Nano Parachute Recovery Systems protect my drone?

Kronos Mini & Kronos Nano Parachute Recovery Systems (PRS) enable an emergency landing following a problem during a flight, by drastically limiting the energy on impact.

To limit this impact energy, the new Kronos Parachute Recovery Systems (PRS) incorporate an autonomous deployment technology. This module triggers the parachute in less than 0.27 seconds, compared with around 3 seconds for a human trigger.

The new PARA² canopies used in Kronos & Zephyr parachute systems are the result of 3 years of development. Their innovative, ultra-light design and unique construction give PARA² canopies superior efficiency and stability. The sink rate is minimized in relation to the surface area of the canopy. Dronavia’s parachute systems is designed so that the canopy(s) keep the drone as flat as possible during its fall to minimise impact damage.

However, Dronavia cannot guarantee that your drone will remain flat. This depends on the weather conditions and the triggering conditions (height, type of ground, etc.).
