BAE Systems Wins $7 Million Order for Advanced Emergency Bailout Parachutes

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

BAE Systems has received a $7 million order from the US Army to produce and deliver parachute systems for use by Army Jumpmasters during airborne operations.

Based on BAE Systems’ FAA-certified Durachute technology, which has 36 different configurations with varying Automatic Activation Devices, canopy releases and ripcord handles, the Advanced Emergency Bailout Parachute (AEBP) is lightweight and can be worn in backpack style, or it can be incorporated into fixed-wing or rotorcraft crew seats.

“BAE Systems’ AEBP is environmentally-sealed with our patented technology,” said Greg Kraak, program director for Warfighter Equipment at BAE Systems Support Solutions. “This feature is a great benefit to the Army as it significantly reduces operational costs and extends repack service for up to five years.”

Another key feature of the environmentally-sealed technology is the parachute’s compact size when packed. This technology reduces the volume and bulk associated with packing a parachute, ultimately easing emergency egress from the aircraft.

The new $7 million order will be produced at the BAE Systems Phoenix, AZ facility. Deliveries are expected to begin this September and will continue through September 2013.

So Google Won’t Support ‘Gun’ Businesses?

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

I’m supposed to be upset because one of my competitors won’t show shopping results for gun related businesses? Seriously? The gun press is getting all worked up about this but it is the best news I’ve had all day!

Hey gun companies, I sell advertising. Also, people who buy guns read my blog and support my advertisers. Take those dollars you were wasting on Google ads and invest them here at SSD.

Who cares if Google wants to play silly games? It’s stuff like this that will make them irrelevant. Gun businesses should support those that write about them, not a bunch of hippies.

The Redeeming Side of BetaBrand

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

So we’ve talked about the BetaBrand DiscoLab pants, but they also are responsible for creating the DARPA Hoody.

Inspired by technology developed for the Programmable Matter undertaking, a computer program helped BetaBrand figure out how to make the most of raw materials to produce the Hoody. Not only did it determine patterning shapes based on how it would drape on the human form but the program also laid out the pieces to maximize yield and minimize waste. Warning military guys…it’s made from Hemp and most sizes are sold out. Maybe they’d make a run in something tacticool.
