Indemnis of Anchorage, Alaska, USA, has developed an innovative parachute for getting drones back on the ground safely, especially if the craft is falling in an uncontrolled spin.

The key to the Nexus is the Dyneema ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fabric from DSM that the deployment tube is made of, which offers high strength.
