SQUARE ROUND THE BEST OF TWO WORLDS
Specification

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 pendelum stability, not trimmed to track in flight. The standard example the Companion is one of the lightest reserve parachutes at 

present: but an ultra-light version is under development.

 

IMPROVED OPENING

Very fast opening – a result of comprehensive real-life tests

 

HIGH SWING RESISTANCE

Exceptionally high swing resistance – highly developed canopy with Air-Jets

 

LIGHT WEIGHT

Minimum weight – perfect choice of materials

 

RELIABLE PACKING

Simple, reliable packing – like a round canopy

MODERN CFD* SIMULATION AS ANALYTICAL METHOD
The Technology

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.
