Research Institution

Expanding upon a successful Phase I program, the Triton team will further develop an advanced powered paraglider system to enhance personal air mobility of USMC reconnaissance personnel in this Phase II effort.  Operational, structural, tactical, and human factors-related features will be refined and optimized for the needed application parameters (e.g., required flight distance, launch flexibility, airspeed, payload capacity).  The resulting system prototypes will be thoroughly tested to prepare for near-term transition.  The system will be capable of both air and foot launch (from ground and flight decks), have a weight capacity of up to 330 lbs., and a range of up to 220 nautical miles.
