Israel-based ParaZe­ro Tech­nolo­gies, an aero­space com­pa­ny focused on advanced safe­ty sys­tems for com­mer­cial drones and Urban Air Mobil­i­ty (UAM) air­craft, announced this week a next-gen­er­a­tion safe­ty prod­uct devel­op­ment, reports a press release.

Called Smar­tAir Trin­i­ty, “It is an Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence-based avion­ics sys­tem that utilis­es a new, lead­ing-edge sen­sor array with advanced capa­bil­i­ties, designed to detect mal­func­tions of UAS and eVTOL in real-time, and pro­vide deep ana­lyt­ics for mis­sion debrief­in­gs,” explains the release.

This sys­tem is com­prised of “sophis­ti­cat­ed visu­al aware­ness cam­eras and an advanced sen­sor suite” that allows UAS and eVTOL air­craft to under­stand their sur­round­ings using Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence and machine learn­ing tech­no­log­i­cal capa­bil­i­ties.” The release con­tin­ues, “Its AI-embed­ded approach sup­ports safe­ty and risk mit­i­ga­tion in addi­tion to over-the-air (OTA) firmware and con­fig­u­ra­tion updates, keep­ing every plat­form up to date with the lat­est and most accu­rate algo­rithms and fea­tures.”

Among an array of new safe­ty capa­bil­i­ties, the Smar­tAir Trin­i­ty offers an “opti­mised para­chute deploy­ment algo­rithm” to improve oper­a­tional capa­bil­i­ties, detec­tion and iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of safe land­ing zone and deliv­ery site areas, GNSS-free nav­i­ga­tion, redun­dan­cy sys­tem for onboard GPS, and mon­i­tor­ing the aircraft’s behav­iour.

Yuval Gilad, ParaZero’s Chief Prod­uct Offi­cer, com­ment­ed, “Our safe­ty prod­uct port­fo­lio has played a crit­i­cal role in ensur­ing our com­mer­cial UAS and UAM mar­kets con­tin­ue to gain momen­tum, with ongo­ing tech­nol­o­gy releas­es, new air­craft devel­op­ment, and sup­port­ive glob­al reg­u­la­to­ry frame­works.”

He con­tin­ued, “In order for organ­i­sa­tions to meet per­for­mance-based safe­ty require­ments and cut time-to-mar­ket, they look to lever­age the most robust and effec­tive safe­ty sys­tems and tech­nolo­gies; in those cas­es, lega­cy safe­ty sys­tems often won’t cut it.” 

Adding, “We are look­ing for­ward to offer­ing our next gen­er­a­tion safe­ty tech­nol­o­gy to the indus­try at a piv­otal time to address both inte­gra­tion needs from orig­i­nal equip­ment man­u­fac­tur­ers and reg­u­la­to­ry require­ments, to enable every plat­form to reach its full poten­tial.”

ParaZe­ro is a lead­ing devel­op­er of autonomous para­chute safe­ty sys­tems for com­mer­cial drones and UAM air­craft. Found­ed in 2014, in Be’er She­va, Israel,  the com­pa­ny designs cut­ting edge autonomous para­chute safe­ty sys­tems designed to enable safe Beyond-Visu­al-Line-Of-Sight (BVLOS) flight oper­a­tions over pop­u­lat­ed areas.
