In Russia, work has begun on the creation of new parachute systems that will avoid the death of military personnel when splashed onto water. Research and development work is carried out by the Technodinamika holding (part of Rostec). This was reported by TASS with reference to the press service of the holding.

Technodynamics creates a parachute that helps to survive the splashdown




The Research Institute of Parachute Engineering, part of the Technodinamika holding, has begun development work on the creation of a new parachute, which will help to avoid the death of military personnel in the water. During the work that has begun, several solutions have already been proposed that allow you to quickly get rid of the suspension system and the canopy of the parachute when landing on the water surface. As one of such methods, the use of quick-release carbines is proposed. At the same time, in order to avoid involuntary opening by accidental pressing, they will receive additional locking devices.

One of them is quick-release locks on the free ends of the parachute system, which allow you to quickly be released from the parachute system, as well as quick-release carbines

- said the CEO of Technodynamics Igor Nasenkov.

Among other options that can save from death during splashdown, the inclusion of a special buoyancy element in the design of the parachute, which is automatically inflated when it enters the water, is considered.

The press service added that the rescue system during splashdown will be used not only on new, just created parachute systems, but the parachutes already used in the troops, including the D-10, will undergo appropriate modernization.

Earlier it was reported that the Research Institute of Parachute Engineering begins testing the new D-14 Shelest parachute, designed specifically for use with Ratnik equipment. The design of the D-14 "Rustle" allows fighters to engage in combat and fire from a regular infantry weaponswhile still in the air.

            There were such parachutes in the Soviet army. Quick-detachable carbines are good, but when several unpleasant incidents occurred, they were quickly removed from service. I saw these, though I don’t remember the name of these systems. And best of all, an ordinary sling cutter!

                Not carbines. Locks on the outboard. They are necessary when landing in strong winds, when there is no way to quickly extinguish the dome.

But having an emergency device with you with a small supply of compressed air is not a delusional idea.) Such a system would very well complement a sling cutter.

          which locks. They die during exercises just because they didn’t unfasten and got confused, and there you just don’t have time to cut everything, you get entangled in these slings and sheets and you go to the bottom. Already, the paratroopers have drowned so many times.

        Well, the reliability here depends on the preparation - you have to figure out when it's time to cut laughing , and this is experience. Although, of course, they teach this fairly, but someone immediately understood, someone only at the first refusal, for example laughing I have just one after the army remained, in common parlance - "fish", but this is not an army sling cutter, but DOSAAF. The army was a nutcracker, a switch-out. But usually - either a bayonet-knife, or some kind of Finnish.

      If you remember, there were reports on the death of pilots colliding over the Tatar Strait SU-34. There, people died during the splashdown. There was also given a sequence of actions that the splashed one should perform in a matter of seconds. There is such a quest that it will take you an hour to remember, and to complete it in a stressful atmosphere, and even if at night, in difficult weather conditions, is simply unrealistic.

      There are two combs of the dome from the suspension system, but they are used when landing on land is unsuccessful (for example, the wind pulls after landing and there is no way to extend the lower slings, to extinguish the dome), but not with splashdown.
      Yes, and such sea troubles are not needed for paratroopers, in this case the simpler the better, the main thing is to observe at least basic safety precautions and everything will be fine, there is nothing to throw soldiers with a parachute anywhere from the seas, forests and high-voltage electric highways. But pilots can be equipped without problems with a parachute-wing (a river or a lake can be removed from under their feet) and an inflatable raft in case of splashing into the sea.

      I found them in the army back in 81st. There were no D-type domes, but on all sorts of T-4, UT-15, etc. were. I will tell you more - even on domes with simple control of "rolls" the fighters have always countered these "rolls", because they will foolishly fly away anywhere or nakuralesit in the air. And so, everything was invented a long time ago and where it should be applied.

    In Russia, work has begun on the creation of new parachute systems that will avoid the death of military personnel when splashed onto water.
    it was high time, since the incident in childhood, the pilots were taken to the Volga during training jumps, they were drowning in front of everyone, the fishermen thought that they worked out the salvation of the pilots who had splashed down and thought for a long time while they sailed and there was no one else, and how many more such cases were. ..

    One of them is quick release couplings on the free ends of the parachute system, which allow you to quickly be released from the parachute system
    On parachutes PTL, "Lesnik", with which we had to jump such locks are available. Trainings on uncoupling from the parachute during splashdown were carried out several times. In addition, training was conducted on partial release from the harness in the air before water landing. But to be honest, the most unpleasant moment comes when you understand that splashdown on a pond cannot be avoided.

    Better and quick-release, and self-inflating device on the newly developed, and on older systems, equipment with inflatable devices. Or it’s simpler - to create a life jacket that can keep a soldier in gear - to buy a certain number of such vests will be cheaper cheaper than to make smart with the proven systems of existing parachutes. Issue such vests when landing in places with a large number of ponds. In addition, there are even armor plates with buoyancy elements, but it’s hardly realistic to equip the entire airborne personnel with such

      The floating armored armor is also a good thing. And after landing, it’s not a fact that you won’t have to force the water barrier. But to connect a life jacket with a parachute is an interesting idea.

      my thoughts are my horses)))) here after all, what’s the matter, putting a life jacket on a prohibitively loaded paratrooper is almost impossible, how to put it on top of or under the equipment? In both cases, problems. And it’s not a matter of buoyancy, or rather, not only in it, the canopy with slings in the water is swaddled so that you won’t get out, that’s why they drown.

      But how about the pilots? They fly everywhere and where it is necessary to catapult is unknown. I think:
      the inclusion in the design of the parachute of a special buoyancy element, which is automatically inflated when it enters the water.
      the best option, as well as quick couplings

      I'm not aware of the armor with buoyancy elements, but back in the 70s, the flyers had 2 "packages" on the harness, and upon splashdown - 2 floating buoys with the "muzzle" up. Everything was invented long ago.

                Here in this photo the commander gives instructions to his crew just before departure. Is this not pre-flight instructions, "normal child"? I don't know where they change their clothes in those parts where MSCs are used, tk. we didn’t use them, but I don’t think they were under the plane just before departure. The ventilation system for the suits of the MSC and the MSC, and not the Navy, was on the plane. Dmitry, if you did not serve in those days, then you do not need to pretend to be an aviation expert of all times and peoples.

    In any case you need a boat, you can’t go far in full gear. An automatic parachute reset cannot be invented ?! Like a cord with a load, when in contact with water, the cord tension will loosen and the reset lock will work. Only the button will need to be activated if I am sure that you are being reduced.

        Joke. In fact, the trouble is not in parachutes, but in people and their training. When I was taught, the matbase was huge, and the approach was really individual. When I was teaching, everything was already simpler - the base is primitive, there are less hours on the VDP. But even though they didn’t fight, they didn’t sink and didn’t burn on the wires. How right there with that, I don’t know.

    Such locks! To unfasten the suspension before splashing is longer than opening 2 locks. I don’t remember a single instance when a parachutist with dips on castles drowned. Do you make conclusions?

    I think I know why you have 2 minuses:
    1. "Rolls" on the D-6 are "countered" by definition. To "unlock", you just need to pull out the locking cord. Another thing is that the personnel were forbidden to do this, and warrant officers and officers sometimes used this device without problems. Although there is a nuance - in several parts I saw PROTECTED "rifts", but I was told that these came from the factory.
