The Harrier product line raises the bar for high-performance, lightweight, and low-cost drone ballistic parachute launchers. Key features of the Harrier product line include:

  • Lightweight - All launchers use thin-walled, carbon fiber canisters and lightweight nylon parts. The smallest launcher features a 30" Iris parachute and weighs just 27.5 grams. The complete launcher with cap, parachute and shock cord weighs just 81 grams!
  • New Parachute - To have the smallest and lightest launcher possible, we developed a new line of parachutes called the "Iris Ultra Zero" parachutes. For example, the IFC-30-SUZ parachute used with the 40mm Harrier launcher weighs just 27.7 grams and is rated at 1/2Kg at 4.6m/s. You can only get this parachute with the new Harrier launcher.
  • High-Energy Spring - All launchers feature powerful springs to get the highest possible ejection velocity at a low weight.
  • Patent Pending Parachute Release - We pushed the envelope to make the launcher as short and compact as possible. We developed a new, low-profile, patent pending spring-release mechanism. A high-quality, fast servo actuates the release of the parachute in a fraction of a second.
  • Ease of Use - To reset the parachute launcher after use, you use a simple tool to push down the launcher piston until it clicks into place. This makes loading the parachute a breeze since you don't have to fight the piston spring. The parachute folding can be optimized for fast opening because the lines don't needed to be wrapped around the parachute.
  • Use for Drones and Fixed Wing - Of course, you're going to want to use the Harrier for your drone parachute recovery system. However, the short and compact launcher also makes the Harrier an ideal solution for fixed wing UAVs as well. All Harrier launchers feature shorter versions that can fit into low-profile fixed wing airframes. Use the Harrier launcher to eject the pilot parachute out and away from the UAV.
  • Many Sizes, Many Diameters - Like our other products, the Harrier product line is a family of launchers of various diameters, and they vary in canister length to accommodate different size parachutes. Sizes include 40mm, 50mm, and 56mm.
