Multi Drop Platform
PROJECT TIMELINE: January – October 2011
Capewell designed, built, and tested a unique, lightweight folding platform that is purpose-built for tactical airdrop operations. The design not only met all development goals, but it also included improvements that reduced the de-rig time to 1 minute or less. Not only did the platform greatly improve the logistics readiness for these airdrop missions, but it had a positive impact on soldier survivability by reducing exposure to enemy fire on the ground.
