AbstractSTARA Technologies is the leading developer of miniature guided parachutes. Over the past seven years we have fabricated guided parachute systems for the US Department of Defense, Department of Energy and other Federal Agencies to precisely deliver light weight payloads such as Unattended Ground Sensors (UGS), communications relays, medical supplies, top attack smart munitions and intelligent robots. In 2006 we developed the world's smallest guided parachute system for the Navy's Center for Interdisciplinary Remotely Piloted Aircraft Studies (CIRPAS). Because we have chosen to specialize in miniature delivery systems, our Mosquito guided parachute system continuously outperforms all other guided parachute systems in the < 500 pound weight range. These results have been documented by the US Army at the Precision Airdrop Conference Technology and Demonstration (PATCAD). In its current form STARA's Mosquito 2 miniature guided parachute system is capable of delivering multiple payloads within a 10 meter CEP using inputs from a GPS receiver and inertial navigation system.
