An advanced new drone safety system aimed at improving drone safety and reducing the risk of accidents and lawsuits will soon be available in Australia.
Global drone safety systems company ParaZero Limited this month launched its latest autonomous drone safety system – SafeAir Phantom – targeting the consumer-based recreational and professional drone market.
ParaZero’s SafeAir Phantom system continuously monitors and analyses the drone’s flight, activating safety measures if a critical failure is detected.
Safety measures include stopping the rotors and deploying the parachute to bring the drone safely to the ground. The parachute system is fully deployed in less than a fraction of a second and can be repacked by the operator and used again.
The product is compatible with the Phantom 4 drone, manufactured by SZ DJI Technology Co, the world’s largest drone manufacturer.
A new product compatible with DJI’s Mavic model will be available soon. The Phantom and the Mavic are two of the world’s best-selling consumer drones.
Major company milestone
“The launch of this new product is a major milestone for ParaZero,” said ParaZero’s CEO, Eden Attias.
The new technology will expand the company into the global mass consumer market, providing the consumer-based recreational and professional drone market with a commercial grade safety solution.
“Safety is key in driving the growth of the drone market and ParaZero’s new product will play a key role in that growth,” Mr Attias said.
“ParaZero’s SafeAir Phantom is compatible with one of the world’s biggest selling drone products, already giving us access to a large population of drone users globally who use their drones for recreational or professional videoing and filming.”
Strong demand expected
The company anticipates strong demand from the consumer drone sector – from recreational users to those who film special events, weddings, or for public safety.
Mr Attias said the product would soon be enhanced with an additional product compatible with another of the world’s biggest selling consumer drone products, further expanding ParaZero’s global consumer market reach.
SafeAir Phantom will be available in Australia through distributor C.R. Kennedy later this month and is now available in the United States through retailers, distributors and online via Amazon.
Already 550 units already have been sold to distributors and retailers worldwide.
