CYPRES is an acronym for Cybernetic Parachute Release System. It refers to a specific make and model of an automatic activation device (AAD), a device that automatically activates a parachute (typically as a reserve system for a skydiver) under certain circumstances.
The CYPRES wasn’t the first AAD ever created but with its visionary cutter system, superior engineering and electronics it revolutionized the way the skydiving sport viewed AADs forever.
There is a reason that all modern AADs look like a CYPRES. A proven maintenance plan, a driven dedication for excellence and frequent innovations defining today’s skydiving industry standards have made CYPRES the most popular AAD worldwide. Accept no substitutes!
