A drone parachute is an emergency recovery system for any UAS (unmanned aerial system), including multicopters, fixed-wing, VTOL, and other UAVs. It is typically deployed through ballistic or passive air extraction and consistently employs a parachute to descend to the ground. In the ever-evolving realm of unmanned aerial systems, the parachute drone market emerges as a beacon of ingenuity and efficiency.

Drone parachute systems provide a safe descent for UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) in the event of system failure. They reduce the risk of harm to people and property damage. They may also recover expensive drones and payloads, preventing them from being damaged or destroyed during a crash.

A parachute system for drones comprises two primary components: a parachute and a parachute deployment system. There are two primary types of deployment: ballistic and passive. UAV parachutes are particularly critical for flights over people, often restricted in many jurisdictions. Installing appropriate certified parachute technology will increase the likelihood of waivers being granted for such flights and other restricted operations, such as BVLOS missions. Parachute systems have the potential to reduce the cost of drone insurance premiums.

Key Industry Developments

  • In March 2024, The United States has conducted its first airdrop of aid to Gaza, with more than 30,000 meals being parachuted in by three military planes. The footage depicts the rescue mission utilizing parachutes in Rafah, Gaza's southernmost city, where approximately 1.5 million Palestinians are currently residing. The operation was carried out in collaboration with the Jordanian air force.

  • In November 2023, AVSS, a Canadian aerospace manufacturer, has been awarded a contract from the Government of Canada to integrate the Guided Parachute Recovery System (GPRS) and the Real-Time Intelligence Landing Software (RILS) The GPRS and RILS will be integrated into DroneUp's Prism Sky platform, which is used for last-mile delivery for Walmart.

  • In November 2023, The Ministry of Defence (MOD) has announced its intention to procure parachute packing, maintenance, and inventory management services to support the MOD's parachuting programme, which conducts an estimated 15,000-25,000 parachute descents per annum. The tender notice, published on October 20, 2023, details a contract with an estimated value between $25M and $30M, expected to last for a period of 4.5 years.

  • In May 2023,  ParaZero, a leading provider of autonomous safety systems, has formed a partnership with Parallel Flight Technologies, a leading provider of heavy-lift drones and hybrid propulsion technologies, with the aim of integrating customized SafeAir parachute safety systems with their flagship heavy-lift, long endurance unmanned aerial vehicle.

  • In March 2023, The US Army has trialled a new parachute system that allows soldiers to access airdropped equipment 40 percent faster. The capability, referred to as the Rapid Rigging De-Rigging Airdrop System (RRDAS), comprises reusable, self-inflating airbags, as opposed to conventional honeycomb-like cardboard layers and steel palettes that commonly shatter upon contact with surfaces.
