The Peregrine UAV Classic system is a completely integrated ballistic deployment system designed for all types of drones, UAV’s and other aerospace recovery applications. It consists of a modular carbon fiber canister containing a pre-packed Iris Ultra chute, a machined aluminum base housing and a fast CO2 release valve. The chute is pressed into a carbon fiber canister and is attached to the base unit with a simple twist lock. Multiple canisters and chutes can be brought into the field, allowing the parachute to be quickly replaced without having to repack.

After use, the canister can be easily replaced with a loaded canister in the field. The chute can later be reloaded into the canister back at your facility. An advantage of pressure packing the parachute is that the packing volume is improved by as much as 40% compared to hand packing into a deployment bag. All units feature the ultra-compact Iris Ultra Compact chute (Spectra shroud lines, and pull down, Kevlar bridle).

The Peregrine IDS is a fully integrated CO2 parachute deployment system

The CO2 ejection system is made of a CNC machined aluminum housing. It uses a standard 1/2" or 3/8" threaded CO2 cartridge available world wide. To initiate deployment an electric initiator or low cost model rocket igniter is used to fire a small .2G Pyrodex or Tripple Seven charge that opens the CO2 cartridge.

Three basic unit sizes are available to accommodate a rage of parachute sizes at 4”, 5” and 6” outer diameter. All systems use the same 4" D base plate, and CO2 actuator valve.

Hawk CO2 Release Valve

NEW! - The Peregrine UAV is now available with the Hark CO2 Release!  It has all the speed of the Raptor CO2 valve, however it does not need any pyro consumables.
