(SYRACUSE, NY) – Following vigorous testing, completed in collaboration with NUAIR, the drone parachute recovery system by Aerial Vehicle Safety Solutions (AVSS) for the DJI M200 series has been validated as compliant with industry standards. The parachute recovery system (PRS-M200) is a safety product for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), commonly referred to has drones, which automatically deploys a parachute if the drone malfunctions in the air.
