Global drones-as-a-service provider, Delta Drone International ‘s safety specialist brand, ParaZero, has signed its first customer contract in South Africa with a leading enterprise mining company for its patented SafeAir drone parachute technology.
The company, which cannot be named for commercial and security reasons, will deploy ParaZero’s SafeAir at scale to enhance its drone safety practises, with the technology comprising independent sensors to constantly monitor and analyse a drone’s flight patterns, so in the unlikely event of a drone failure, a parachute is automatically activated to land safely – including over people and moving vehicles.
This sales contract is reflective of the synergy benefits of the combined Delta Drone and ParaZero businesses and represents significant potential for additional sales of ParaZero’ market leading technology through the industry networks of its parent entity, Delta Drone SA (France), and the combined Delta Drone International sales channels as the company increases the international footprint of its specialist business units covering safety, compliance, training and drone service operations in all commercial sectors and environments.
Commenting on the agreement, Delta International CEO, Christopher Clark said: “Leveraging the contacts of our largest shareholder, Delta Drone in France to sign ParaZero’s first customer contract in South Africa moves us a step closer to achieving our goal of becoming a truly international drones-as-a-service provider.”
“Ensuring our customers’ inhouse drone systems not only comply but exceed the most stringent safety standards set by the world’s civil aviation regulators is of the upmost importance to our business and is a testament to our research and development team who consistently work to create the newest innovations in drone safety technology.”
“As the world continues to further embrace drone technology, we will continue to play a leading role in helping the drone industry ensure safety and compliance through our patented safety solutions.”
