Parachute

Recovery System Demonstration

On October 19, 2021, Earthly Dynamics Corporation (EDC) demonstrated its precision-guided parafoil technology with partner Spaceworks Enterprises by accurately and softly delivering a prototype RED-4U capsule from a high-altitude balloon. The capsule was dropped from over 100,000 ft MSL, and EDC’s proprietary flight control system flew the capsule to an ideal landing location using a parafoil developed by Aerial Delivery Solutions. Recovery of the capsule and sub payload began within minutes of landing because of the precision landing.

EDC would like to thank NASA – National Aeronautics and Space Administration‘s Flight Opportunities Program for the ride and mission partners SpaceWorks Enterprises, Inc. (SEI) , Aerial Delivery Solutions, and Near Space Corporation for making this landing demonstration possible. SpaceWorks Enterprises served as the prime contractor for the overall project.
