ParaZero has announced the addition of a unique safety functionality for its drone safety parachutes to support geocaging capabilities.

The Israel-based company, which builds safety systems for commercial aircraft and urban air mobility vehicles, says its new feature could prove instrumental for operating uncrewed aircraft in populated and restricted areas. It could also become a key component in long-range and beyond the visual line of sight (BVLOS) operations.

Geocaging is a feature that offers additional positioning resources for tasks demanding a higher level of reliability and accessibility than what is achievable with standard GPS or geofencing methods.

When drones functioning in restricted zones deviate from their planned flight paths, they can pose a risk to people, property, or even other aircraft. Geo-restriction through geocaging can help to address this issue by making sure the drone doesn’t…
