Title: Variable Glide Aerial Delivery Parachute Systems
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Contract: W911QY-05-C-0019
Award Amount: $69,941.00
 

Abstract:

A parachute system with variable glide capability will improve the accuracy and maneuverability achievable for aerial delivery through in-flight configuration changes that can effectively alter the L/D. Such a capability will optimize control in variable environments (e.g. wind) and maximize flexibility in release locations and payload weight ranges. A program is proposed to develop and study potential concepts. Prototype parachutes capable of delivering payloads in the 50lb to 500lb range will be fabricated and tested.
