A "smart" parachute system of high landing accuracy has been tested in Russia

12

The Technodinamika holding, which is part of the Rostec state corporation, has created a cargo parachute, which is capable of descending from an aircraft to a strictly defined place using navigation equipment with great accuracy. This "smart" transport parachute system has recently been factory tested in Russia.


This information appeared on the official website of the Rostec State Corporation.

According to the head of the Tekhnodinamika holding Igor Nasenkov, the maximum carrying capacity of the parachute that participated in the tests is 250 kilograms. It can be used to drop weapons, ammunition, food and more. And a modification is already ready, capable of transporting a cargo that has twice its mass.

The system includes, in addition to the "wing" type parachute itself, a platform for transportation, as well as special equipment. She is controlled from the ground in a remote mode (using coordinates according to the coordinates of GLONASS / GPS), or she can follow another parachutist, performing the function of "leader". When dropped from a height of four kilometers, the landing accuracy is less than 100 meters. This is a high accuracy with such altitude parameters.

The system has been tested for six months. It has shown its reliability and effectiveness. The parachute was checked in the central regions of Russia and in the Crimea. In the future, the transport system is awaiting flight design tests, which are scheduled to be completed early next year.

It is assumed that the development will significantly increase the combat capabilities of the Airborne Forces and units of special operations forces.

    Technodinamika is testing a brigadeless system ... well, it’s good that it’s not parachuteless ...!

    A very cool thing if the performance characteristics are confirmed by military operation.

    Just like in the joke: "The smart parachute system flatly refused to leave the plane."

    or she can follow another parachutist acting as "lead".

    I hope the option is "not on your head!" provided?

    I wonder what prevents the system from going to the designated coordinate? Let's say it was broadcast on the plane by radio. Nothing so in my opinion.

      Apparently, they proceed from the fact that under certain conditions the satellite constellation can be suppressed, but this system can still be controlled "by eye".

    At one time, Avialesokhrana tested a similar system. In principle, the topic is good, to some extent it satisfied the requirements, but the technical imperfection of that time let down, and the Soviet Union ended .. If then the system had been brought to a working version, then now it was used by many.

    But I'm still afraid to jump with a parachute ...

    She, we do not know how, after all, it was only the Americans who landed the Apallons on the Belomor map in the 60s from orbit with an accuracy of several kilometers ... and we were looking for a capsule at 10000 km2 ... laughing
