Multi-mission tandem/airdrop barrel system

PATENT PENDING

The SWORD International Multi-Mission Air Delivery System was designed to address the problems surrounding the Container, a mission critical component. All efforts and innovation have traditionally been spent on what attaches north or skyward of the load connection point, the parachute system, and rigging.

Our intent when designing the system was to decrease bundle build and packing time, allow for “on the plane” loading over the objective, make the container watertight, protect the payload during the impact phases of delivery, create a system that can be deployed in all of the required airdrop configurations, decrease exit and opening shock to prevent injury to the jumper and/or system & provide a safe, intuitive system that packs and performs the same from exit to impact.

We achieved all of our critical objectives and more with this system, the only complete air drop system of its kind.

  • Integrated push handles to aid in vigorous exit out of aircraft
  • Intuitive ballast system assures safe fall rate and center of gravity
  • Fall Rate Calculator takes the guesswork out of packing & weighting the barrel system
  • Optional GPS/Iridium tracking system for real time PLI tracking

Main Barrel

  • The main barrel is single walled with SWORD’s patented integrated channels for the main strapping system
  • Upper & lower lip of the barrel reinforced for durability and impact resistance
  • The Main lid includes cut-outs for the strapping system to pass through

Barrel Strapping Systems

  • Strapping system consists of two continuous straps that are routed through the channels on the sides of the main barrel
  • Strapping system allows for full line stretch during the deployment impact phases
  • Line stretch decreases the shock load on the jumper & parachute system, decreasing the occurrence of injury and/or damage to components
  • The Inner payload barrel strapping system allows for easy removal from & replacement of the payload container into the main barrel
