The rescue system “LuckyBeak” is designed to provide precision landing for UAS with the weight of 2.5 to 10 kg under normal and emergency conditions. “LuckyBeak” is brought into action by operator or autopilot command. Moreover, “LuckyBeak” can be optionally outfitted with its own programmable controller, which ensures automatic deployment in case of descending below a specified altitude or any other preset conditions. This option provides safe landing even if the main pilotage system is out of order or an operator loses control. An important feature of “LuckyBeak” is its response even if airborne systems are completely de- energized. Using high-quality materials ensures the system compactness and light weight. A special shape of the parachute ensures low descent speed with a relatively small surface area. A special design solution provides parachute fast deployment immediately after its activation. Moreover, parachute packing is fairly simple and does not require any special devices or skills.
