Skycat Drone Parachute Launcher

ALWAYS LAND ON YOUR FEET

Skycat is a parachute recovery system primarily for Multicopters, single rotor helicopters, or smaller fixed wing UAS. It is designed to reduce the impact energy of the UAS in emergency situations to provide a safe landing, protect pepole on the ground, and save your airframe from serious damage. The Patent-pending FUSE® technology ensures a fast and successful parachute eject and safe landing, even when flying at low altitudes. Thanks to its compact size and weight, it's an easy addition to have on board. Skycat keeps you flying and makes people feel secure doing business with you.

To avoid entanglement, Skycat ejects a parachute like a bullet, beyond the rotors spinning radius.

BULLET-LIKE LAUNCH TRAJECTORY

To avoid entanglement, Skycat ejects the parachute like away from the airframe and propellers. FUSE® technology releases the piston in a fraction of a second. There is no hatch and servo hatch release needed.

Replacing the low-cost FUSE® is easy without any special tools, and it only takes a few minutes to repack the device for another launch.

SMALL AND LIGHTWEIGHT

To achieve clean installation and minimum reduction of flight time, the Skycat is designed to be the small, and light weight, and reliable parachute system.

QUICK LAUNCH

In an emergency, seconds matter. Skycat ejects in milliseconds, dramatically increasing the chance of safe landing.

SCALABLE AND ADAPTABLE

Skycat can be installed on almost any airframe. Multiple parachute sizes are available for small and large UAV's and up to 3 units can be installed to handle higher weight and with better redundancy.

FAILOVER BATTERY OPTION

If you want total independence of the UAVs flight power status, a dedicated battery can be used as an option. In addition, you can use multiple independent receivers, powered from same or different BECs, for added radio (launch command) channel reliability.

PATENT-PENDING DESIGN

To launch the parachute, an electric jolt is conducted through the patent-pending Skycat FUSE® trigger assembly, which mechanically and immediately releases all piston energy at once. This results in a very reliable, and simple release mechanism.
