The Foreign Trade Austria, Internationalization and Innovation Agency of the Austrian Economic Chamber just named the parachute safety solution manufacturer Drone Rescue Systems “Born Global Champion” 2019. The award is presented every year to young Austrian companies with innovative products and success internationally.
The award highlights Drone Rescue Systems’ and the other winners early international orientation and thus their contribution to the Austrian export economy. “We are very pleased that our products and our global approach convinced the jury to select us out of 200 competitors as ‘Global Born Champion’,” said Andreas Ploier, CEO and co-founder.
Part of the award is to further support Drone Rescue Systems in its internationalization through using the large network of 100 Austrian foreign trade centers, participation in various “go-international” programs as well as, for the first time, trade fair support for start-ups.
Drone Rescue Systems GmbH, awarded by the European Space Agency (ESNC-2016), reportedly developed the fastest and most efficient parachute safety solution for drones currently available on the market. The parachute safety solution works autonomously and independently from the drone and ejects the parachute in a fraction of a second, enabling safe commercial and private drone usage even over crowed places.
The main goals of the Drone Rescue products are to reduce the risk of harming people on the ground and to bring down the expensive equipment safely when the drone malfunctions while in flight.
