Tel Aviv, Israel, Dec – ParaZero Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: PRZO) (the “Company “ParaZero”), an aerospace company focused on drone safety systems for commercial drones and urban air mobility aircraft, announced today it has formed a working partnership with KULR Technology Group, Inc. (NYSE American: KULR) (“KULR”), a global leader in sustainable energy management, to leverage ParaZero’s business network within the defense industry for applying KULR’s vibration reduction technology (“KULR VIBE”) on helicopter and rotorcraft fleets.
By integrating the ParaZero SafeAir and SmartAir Trinity solutions with the KULR VIBE software in a combined product, the companies aim to achieve increased drone performance, operational efficiency, and improve safety to set a new standard for the industry.
The singular focus of this collaboration is safety. ParaZero’s SafeAir system applies real-time data analytics and independent sensors to identify and mitigate flight risks autonomously and increase safety for bystanders while protecting the loss of expensive drones, equipment, and payloads. Likewise, precise vibrational control is critical for helicopters and high performance unmanned aerial applications to operate safely and achieve mission critical success.
KULR VIBE is a track-and-balancing technology employing artificial-intelligence-driven algorithms to pinpoint and correct excess vibration in a rotorcraft system. The KULR VIBE removes vibration, which is negative energy for helicopters and drones which at a minimum reduces flight range and aerial efficiency and in excess, in the case of helicopters, be catastrophic where lives are potentially lost. Excess rotor vibration can lead to system malfunctions, weakened performance, and maintenance issues. Mechanical fatigue from excess vibration can cause parts in a helicopter to fail in flight which may have significant risks for loss of life, or at a minimum, incur significant downtime, high maintenance cost, pilot fatigue, and performance reductions by both the aircraft and the pilot. In addition to helicopters, both companies see applications for KULR VIBE in eVTOL aircrafts and unmanned aircraft systems.
Both KULR and ParaZero are leaders in their fields, and have had success in the defense, safety, and commercial sectors.
Just last month ParaZero announced that an Australian commercial drone operator and training organization, OVRL, secured landmark authorization from the Civil Aviation Safety Authority, using ParaZero’s advanced safety system. This was the first time in Australia that drones were approved to fly over urban landscapes and crowds. And in September of this year, ParaZero announced the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration had granted a ParaZero customer an airworthiness Type Certification, a historic milestone that will streamline continuous operational approvals for broad flight operations, including fully autonomous missions, operations over people, and beyond visual line of sight operations. The certification verified the compliance of the aircraft’s design with the required FAA airworthiness standards, ensuring safe operations within the National Airspace System. More recently, ParaZero unveiled a pioneering AI-driven avionics system, SmartAir Trinity, setting a new standard for drone safety within the defense sector. This advanced technology offers real-time malfunction detection and critical mission analytics, ensuring a robust solution to support operational security for defense drones.
KULR VIBE has a long history of success serving the United States Department of Defense (“DoD”), recently identifying and remedying vibration problems on two Bell AH-1Z Viper attack helicopters and one Bell Boeing Osprey V-22 tiltrotor aircraft at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton in Southern California. In other related projects, KULR VIBE reduced vibration by 95% for USAF H-60 helicopters and reduced track and balanced maintenance tasks by 70% all while increasing efficiency and fleet readiness.
