Advance Companion SQR HG
SQUARE ROUND: THE BEST OF TWO WORLDS
The Hybrid SQR is the first product from Companion. It founds a new generation of reserve parachute, which merges the advantages of the classic round canopy and the cross version into an innovative and forward-looking technology. The SQR has been newly developed from the start, and is precisely directed to meet the needs of pilots and packers.
Countless computer simulations and practical tests have been an essential part of an extensive development process. The result is a reserve with aerodynamically enhanced pendulum stability, not trimmed to track in flight. The standard example the Companion is one of the lightest reserve parachutes at present.
Technical Data – Advance Companion SQR HG
NEW, BUT EXPERIENCED
Companion is the new brand name for high quality reserve parachutes for paragliders and hanggliders. The Companion brand represents scientific product development. Companion is a joint venture of EVOTEC and ADVANCE. Combining an immense degree of know-how from the fields of simulation, design, test, production and marketing. Providing this experience are paragliding legends like Hannes Papesh, Peter Mack, Mike Küng and ADVANCE.
For the first time in the paraglider market Companion introduces a reserve whose development has been based on authentic computational flow analysis, verified by an extensive progression of practical tests. At the core of CFD analysis is a continuous feedback system, which repeatedly recalculates, many times over, an analysis of the deformation and strain on the reserve in the air, each time taking into account all that has gone before.
This is an important aspect for reserve parachute analysis because these deform a lot due to their pronounced curvature. Our own simulation software and test vehicle makes it possible to make a multiplicity of numerical CFD analyses, as well as deployment tests. At the moment this approach is unique in rescue parachute development.
