Abstract
Not Available This SBIR Phase I proposal describes a concept study for a single-soldier delivery system that is launched in-flight at high altitude from a carrier aircraft. The delivery vehicle is a glider modified for powered flight using a ducted-fan propulsion system. The air-delivery system uses an autonomous GPS guidance system that initializes before deployment, then continuously corrects the flight path of the aircraft. After the deployment and cruise phase, the delivery vehicle intercepts and flies a terminal glide path to its objective, where it lands using a ballistic parachute system.
