Onyx precision guided parachutes

Atair Aerospace is bringing some hot technology which allows you to deploy 50 or more cargo parachutesin the same airspace, from as high as 35,000 feet, and have them allautonomously glide for as far as 30 miles before landing within 50 meters of apreprogrammed target. The Onyx parachutes have parafoil systems todirect themselves, and the flocking and Active Collision Avoidancetechnologies allow the robotic parachutes to communicate with each other andavoid messy accidents.
