Medigus: ParaZero Ramps Up Partnership with US-Based Autonomous Drone OEM Vayu Aerospace Corporation

As part of the ongoing collaboration with Vayu Aerospace, ParaZero's safety systems will be integrated into Vayu’s fleet of delivery drones

Tel Aviv, Israel, Feb. 22, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medigus Ltd. (Nasdaq: MDGS), a technology company engaged in electric vehicle charging solutions, advanced medical solutions, and innovative internet technologies, today announced that on February 20, 2024 ParaZero Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: PRZO) (“ParaZero”), an aerospace company focused on drone safety systems for commercial drones and urban air mobility aircraft, (18.68% owned by Medigus), announced that it has expanded its collaboration with Vayu Aerospace Corporation ("Vayu"), a US-based drone original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and subsidiary of Alpine 4 Holdings (“Alpine 4”) (Nasdaq: ALPP).

The two companies worked together over the past two years enhancing safety solutions for Vayu’s commercial and military vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft. According to Research and Markets the global market for VTOL unmanned aerial vehicles is projected to reach a size of $27.5 Billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 19.9% between 2022 and 2030.  With this new collaboration, ParaZero will customize its SafeAir system to be integrated at the design stage of Vayu’s G-1MKII VTOL aircraft.  The two companies also have performance-based regulatory compliance testing and validation planned for the near future to unlock a range of use cases for Vayu’s global customers.

Boaz Shetzer, Chief Executive Officer of ParaZero commented, “We are glad to strengthen our partnership with Vayu, an innovator in autonomous drone technology. We have many successes from around the world in aiding our customers to achieve regulatory approvals for advanced operations using our SafeAir parachute systems.  As we move forward integrating our SafeAir system from the design stage of Vayu’s cutting-edge VTOLs, we are setting new standards in drone safety and functionality.”

Kent Wilson, Chief Executive Officer of Alpine 4 and Vayu commented, “We at Alpine 4 and Vayu Aerospace are thrilled to partner with ParaZero, a leader in aviation safety solutions. Incorporating their parachute system into our G-1 and US-1 platforms signifies a monumental step forward in ensuring the utmost safety of our operations. This feature is not just an enhancement; it is a fundamental component that underlines our commitment to safe, reliable, and efficient aerial solutions. Further, it is a pivotal integration for our sister company, Global Autonomous Corporation, to achieve Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) flight permissions from the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA) and within Dubai, UAE.”

Nathan Grier, Director of Flight Operations of Vayu, commented, “Our mission is to push the boundaries of aerial innovation and safety, ensuring that our operations not only meet, but exceed the stringent standards set forth by regulatory bodies worldwide.  Our partnership with ParaZero is a testament to this commitment. Their unparalleled experience with EASA certifications positions us uniquely for the successful completion of Global Autonomous Corporation's Validation Test Campaign in Dubai and paves the way for our future EASA certifications in Europe.  Integrating ParaZero's SafeAir systems into our fleet signifies a leap forward in operational safety and regulatory compliance, enabling us to undertake complex operations with confidence.”

ParaZero’s SafeAir is an uncrewed aircraft system (UAS) parachute recovery system that mitigates flight risks autonomously. The SafeAir system is equipped with integrated sensors that continuously monitor and analyze the drone’s flight patterns to identify any indications of a critical failure. When triggered, the SmartAir Pro™, ParaZero’s onboard computer, responds with an instantaneous activation of the SafeAir system. The system cuts power to the drone, alerts people on the ground with an audible alarm, and deploys a lightweight parachute, bringing the drone down to the ground in a safe, controlled descent.
