ParaZero announces a new development agreement with Colombia-based drone OEM, Black Square, an industrial drone producer leader in the region that focuses on enterprise drone platforms.

Black Square‘s decision to integrate ParaZero’s patented parachute technology underscores the importance of safety in advanced drone operations.

Black Square CEO, Juan Manuel Gonzalez, stated: “Adding rescue systems to our Hercules X4 and Hercules X8 heavy lift drone family was a necessary step to enhance our platform safety as well as expand the use cases for our platforms and customers. To guarantee the success of this move, we know for sure that we have to do it hand by hand with the best. For that reason, we choose ParaZero to join us in this journey.”

“Latin America represents a growing market for commercial drone applications, and our collaboration with Black Square solidifies our commitment to promoting safety across the commercial drone ecosystem in the region,” said Aaron Gliner, Director of Business Development and Regulation. “Having recently facilitated groundbreaking operational approvals in Latin America with our technology, we’re eager to further our presence and deepen our ties in Latin America, and we look forward to our new partnership with the very talented team at Black Square.”

ParaZero’s SafeAir system offers a holistic safety approach for drone operations. By constantly monitoring and analyzing the aircraft’s flight patterns, the technology ensures that any indication of critical failure triggers the autonomous deployment of a ballistic parachute. This ensures a safe, controlled descent, drastically minimizing ground risk and potential for damage or injury in the event of an in-flight emergency.

Equipped with ParaZero’s patented parachute technology, organizations and operators around the world have received regulatory approvals for advanced operations, including autonomous flight beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS), operations over people, operations in densely populated areas, and drone delivery use cases, by providing a robust safety solution to mitigate ground risk in the event of an emergency.
