Drone Parachute Testing

Flytrex – Between June 17 to the 22nd, we successfully met the ASTM FM3322-18 parachute testing with NUAIR in Griffiss International Airport. 

Our setup included the Flytrex Drone Delivery system, based on DJI’s Matrice 600 Pro, and Drone Rescue Systems’ DRS-M600 parachute and flight termination system.

Inside Unmanned Systems,

“Following strenuous testing completed by Northeast UAS Airspace Integration Research (NUAIR) at the New York UAS Test Site in Rome, New York, Israel-based drone company Flytrex has the parachute on its package delivery drones validated as compliant with industry standards. Through these rigorous tests, NUAIR is providing the unmanned aircraft system (UAS) industry with the data and standards testing needed to unlock commercial operations.

This announcement builds on a $30 million investment announced by New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to develop the 50-mile UAS traffic management corridor between Syracuse and Griffiss International Airport, in Rome, New York to advance the growing UAS industry as part of the CNY Rising initiative.”  MORE
