Recommended Features:

Micro Onyx parachute can deliver weights from 0 to 20 lbs.Micro Onyx introduced by Atair Aerospace is a miniature, autonomously guided parafoil system developed for the precision emplacement of unattended ground sensors and deployment of small munitions from UAVs. The system supports payloads of up to 20 lbs. (9 kg) Micro Onyx uses collision avoidance algorithms to enable simultaneous deployment of multiple payloads (50+) in the same airspace, guiding each payload to a specific destination, or multiple targets without risking midair collisions. Additionally, individual units can be networked to other units and/or base station computers to form a self-healing, masterless ad-hoc network capable of transmitting data up to 60 miles (80 km) per unit.
