Aerial delivery systems on show in India

Airborne Systems : 06 February, 2014  (Company News)
The Guided Precision Aerial Delivery Systems from Airborne Systems will be on show this week at DEFEXPO in New Delhi
Aerial delivery systems on show in India

Airborne Systems will display its Guided Precision Aerial Delivery Systems (GPADS) at DEFEXPO 2014 from February 6 – 9 at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.

The GPADS, which includes MicroFly, FireFly and 1T FF, are capable of carrying an operational payload range from 200 – 2,200 lb (90 – 998 kg) and require only the impact coordinates and rigged weight 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 US army for its JPADS 2K and JPADS 10K programmes of record.

Also on display will be the RA-1 advanced ram-air parachute system. This system has received type classification by the US DoD and utilises the Intruder canopy. In 2014, the US DoD will begin fielding the RA-1 parachute system to the US Army, Air Force and Navy.

Other items on display will include the T-11 troop personnel parachute; and other HAHO equipment 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.
