Paratech Parachutes specializes in lightweight design and development of high performance hybrid parachute systems using composite materials such as Kevlar, Spectra, Vectran and other materials for special programs and projects. Our parachutes and deployment systems are currently in use by several aerospace companies. These systems include rockets, unmammed aerial vehicles (UAV's), jet drag chutes, and other special applications to meet ongoing proprietary needs and requirements of military, government, university and private sector aerospace applications.
Our parachutes have successfully flown to space and back on a NASA sounding rocket to return a scientific payload after surviving a Mach 2.5 parachute deployment, which is the fastest successful parachute deployment ever acheived on a NASA sounding rocket. Paratech Parachutes flown to space and back, and around the world on the Global Flyer jet, have worked flawlessly and deployed as designed. Paratech Parachutes has proven background and demonstrated expertise in producing reliable high performance parachute systems.
