Airborne Systems introduces Microfly II
MicroFly II features a silent slider, removable lithium battery with a six month maintenance schedule, simplified drogue falling and a light system. The silent slider is available on the Intruder 360 canopy and reduced the inflight noise of the system.
With the help of a Ram Air parachute, Microfly II can fly itself to a designated point on the ground after being dropped from altitudes up to 24,500ft above mean sea level. It can fly autonomously to its pre-programmed target without any external guidance. Additionally, MicroFly II can accompany HALO / HAHO teams during operational parachute insertions.
GPADS can deliver survival kits, equipment, food and troop resupply equipment, among others, to a warzone for humanitarian relief or to support troops. They have glide ratios of up to 4:1 and can deliver loads ranging from 100 to 42,000lbs.
