The new FAA regulations state that drones weighing under 3.5 pounds with a system that has passed the ASTM F3322-18 and above test are approved to fly over populated areas

Tel Aviv, Israel, July 10, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ParaZero Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: PRZO) (the "Company” or “ParaZero”), an aerospace company focused on drone safety systems for commercial drones and urban air mobility aircraft, announces today it has received ASTM F3322-22 approval, following the completion of the official testing for its SafeAir Mavic 3 system. Using the Company’s SafeAir system, operators of DJI Mavic 3 Series, will be eligible for an approval to fly over people and moving vehicles.

ASTM International, originally known as the American Society for Testing and Materials, is a globally recognized organization that has been developing international standards for over 125 years. These standards ensure consistent performance and set the safety requirements across various industries. The ASTM F3322-22 standard specifically pertains to the deployment of parachutes for Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS), ensuring their safe descent in the event of an emergency.

The testing was monitored and approved by a third-party, unbiased testing agency. This agency meticulously measured, monitored and documented all relevant metrics, ensuring that every aspect of the testing process is conducted according to the highest standards.

The ASTM F3322-22 testing process challenges our SafeAir system in several critical scenarios:

Hovering and Full Forward Speed: ensuring the parachute deploys effectively during stationary and high-speed flights.

Full Power Cut and Critical Motor Failure: Simulating sudden power losses and motor failures to ensure quick parachute deployment, preventing free-fall.

Shock Load: Deploying the parachute from maximum altitude to test mechanical integrity under high-stress conditions.

The SafeAir system's autonomous trigger detects flight anomalies and deploys the parachute swiftly, ensuring reliability and minimizing false positives.

“ParaZero is determined to lead the drone market by adhering to strict regulatory standards and providing added value to our customers. The current approval allows drone operators to use our safety system to fly over people and moving vehicles. This approval was granted thanks to our advanced technology, and we intend to continue offering the market advanced safety solutions,” said Boaz Shetzer, CEO of ParaZero.
