Smart parachute rescue system available for DJI M210 Series

Posted by Admin

Focusing on the DJI M210 series, Drone Rescue's developers have set their sights on the next commercial drone from DJI. "With this new product, we are taking the natural step of securing commercial drone applications as well as police and fire brigade operations, since the DJI M210 V2 drone is used for many of these applications," reports Andreas Ploier, CEO and co-founder of Drone Rescue Systems GmbH. With regard to professional applications, the DJI M210 V2 is one of the world's best-selling drones and is used for inspections, protection and rescue services. The design as well as the flexibility of the aircraft allow for a variety of industry-specific applications. For this purpose, some of the drones are equipped with cost-intensive cameras and sensors that require special protection in the event of a failure of the flight system. "Investments for these drones are sometimes quite high. Therefore, in the event of a crash, special attention should be paid to the protection of the drone as well as the payload," says Ploier.
