Drone Rescue Systems’ DRS-M600 parachute safety solution has been tested to ensure compliance with the ASTM F3322-18 standard.

The successful completion of the test makes it possible for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to issue permits for the system to be used for beyond visual line of sight flights and over crowds.

Developed for DJI M600 and DJI M600pro, the DRS-M600 autonomous parachute safety solution weighs 430g and works without pyrotechnic, enabling it to be immediately reused by attaching and detaching it via a bayonet mechanism.

In addition to structural requirements, documentation and dimensioning, the ASTM F3322-18 standard also defines 45 test flight scenarios which must be successfully completed with the parachute. These include combinations of releasing when hovering and in full forward flight, with the minimum and maximum take-off-weight, automatic and manual release as well as a shock load test, where the drone is put into free fall for three seconds and then the parachute is released.
