Will Display Parachutes For Personnel, Cargo
The next generation of personnel and cargo delivery parachutes for the modern warfighter produced by Airborne Systems will be displayed by HDT Global at the AUSA 2013 Annual Meeting and Exposition this week.
On display will be the Intruder which has been type-classified as the RA-1 to replace the MC-4 as the primary tactical parachute by the U.S. Army; T-11 personnel parachute; and other personnel support systems such as the Special Operations Long Range Oxygen Supply 3,000 psig (SOLR 3000) that offers 60% more oxygen capacity than the PHAOS; and the Parachutist High Altitude Thermal Suit (PHATS) – a complete thermal management suit that is lightweight, breathable, windproof and water repellant to protect against extreme cold temperatures during HAHO jumps.
Airborne Systems will also highlight the capabilities of the FlyClops, a fully autonomous, one-time use Guided Precision Airdrop System (GPADS) capable of carrying payloads ranging from 200 – 2,200 lb and only requires the impact coordinates and landing direction to provide precision cargo delivery from high altitude.
Airborne Systems is the technological leader in precision aerial delivery as evidenced by FireFly and DragonFly being adopted by the U.S. Army for its 2K and 10K JPADS programs.
GPADS lowers reliance on convoys and IED exposure, decreases the forward logistic footprint, reduces aircrew threat exposure and provides vertical and horizontal standoff with fewer deployed/exposed personnel.
