Parachute Release System

RUFA revolutionary solution to an all too common battlefield problem.

Parachute Self-Release System

This Parachute Self-Release System is designed and built from the ground up to provide an effective solution to a common battlefield problem. In harsh weather conditions the parachute canopy may be filled with air, dragging and potentially flipping the load across the ground, thus making it unusable for troops.

This unique patented solution is easy to operate and cost effective. Two specifically designed units connect the parachute to the main load, and upon impact, the units immediately disconnect the load from the parachute.

Advantages Include

  • Minimal maintenance required
  • System can be resused
  • Cargo can be precisely dropped, even in severe weather conditions

The Parachute Self-Release Mechanism is Comprised of 2 Main Components

  • Ground Contact Release Device
  • Automatic Release Mechanism
