DSEI 17 – Atlas Devices Introduces Lightweight Assault Ladder From Pilot Innovations

Friday, September 15th, 2017

leading up to SOFIC we told you about the Lightweight Assault Ladder by Pilot Innovations. It is now available from Atlas Devices.  Weighing in at 18 lbs (8.1kg), the ladder extends to 18′ (5.5m). The wide rungs are spaced 15.4″ (39.2cm) apart. Although the working load is 350lbs (158.76kg) and intended for single user at a time, it can be used for bridging, although training is a must to learn how wide the spans may be.

The carbon fiber construction features positive step locks which are located under each step. Additionally, the ladder can be fitted with removable nylon shoulder straps.

SOFIC – Atlas Devices

Tuesday, May 24th, 2016

Atlas Devices always has some great new technologies and this year, they didn’t disappoint.

This is the ConAxe, designed to be inserted into the eyelets of a Connex. With a pul of the telescoping pole’s rope, it inserts into the eyelet and holds fast. It’s the first time it’s been shown publicly so customers may end up asking to have it adapted to their pole system.

Below is an Atlas Magnetron System. This seven pound system incorporates switchable magnet for VBSS and other tactical access including vertical overhangs. It will suspend up to 700 lbs per magnet which are switched on and off via the handle.

    High Angle Solutions – Atlas Devices – ATL (Atlas Tactical Ladder) – RACC System

    Wednesday, January 13th, 2016

    [ATL-RACC] Horizontal Hoist w Attendant

    The ATL-RACC utilizes the Aluminum Tactical Ladder (ATL) designed by Atlas, displayed in our previous post as the core backbone of the RACC system. The RACC Kit is a soft goods attachable patient packaging, bridle, and stow cover kit that can be attached to the ATL rails during all assault ladder use cases without impacting ladder functions. The unique style covers enable the straps to be deployed in appropriate phases for securing patients to the ladder and rigging the bridle system for vertical or horizontal orientations without any tying of knots. The core ATL provides a more rigid platform to protect patients during difficult edge transitions. The RACC can also convert the ATL into a bipod / high point for litter work and edge rappels.

    The ATL-RACC is capable of meeting the following mission profiles:

  • Litter/Hoisting/Drag
  • High Angle Rescue
  • Confined Space
  • Structural Collapse
  • Disaster Response
  • Glacier
  • Why ATL-RACC?

  • Immediate access to hoist capability with extremely minimal configuration setup time and steps
  • Low volumetric/weight impact for carriage to already existing primary task equipment (i.e. a ladder)
  • Combine adverse terrain litter capabilities (Hoist-able Litter, Edge transitions, Confined Space access) into one lightweight attachable system for total team weight reduction
  • Reduce time of safe TACEVAC transport in TCCC
  • Reduce operators required to execute TACEVAC capability freeing them for for other critical tasks

    High Angle Solutions – Atlas Devices – ATL (Atlas Tactical Ladder) System

    Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015

    Today, we’re introducing a new company to the High Angle Solutions rotation, Atlas Devices, LLC. Atlas Devices is a world leader in tactical access for SOF. Look forward to future High Angle Solutions posts from Atlas, in addition to CTOMS and DMM.

    ATL System Introduction

    The Atlas Tactical Ladder system designed by Atlas Devices is an extremely versatile tool for SOF teams to increase their current tactical access capabilities while generating new ones never before possessed. The ATL System can be used for collapsible bridging, extended reach, weight reduction, ladder/bridge range increase, and more, in scenarios and locals including:

  • Urban Tactical Assault
  • Maritime Boarding
  • Rural Desert
  • Glacier
  • Fixed and Rotary Wing AIROPS
  • ATL Web Photo_Ladder_9919_Face Blur_Edited_Retina Display

    The core of the Atlas Tactical Ladder system is a rigid 7 ft collapsible ladder (P/N: ATL) weighing under 10 lbs. In addition to vertical climbing, the ATL can also safely bridge gaps with a 400 lb load. Its joint locking system can be set to auto-locking mode for rapid deployment or manual lock whisper mode for silent deployments. The collapsed profile can be packed within a torso dimension for ease of employment by all infiltration methods including MFF and AIE operations.

    ATL Web Photo_Bridge_9986_Face Blur_Edited_Retina Display

    The ATL has a suite of accessories that enhance the capability of the ATL by utilizing unique design features that integrate into the ATL core ladder/bridge system. All accessories are tool-less for rapid don/doff. Atlas Devices is currently finalizing safe working load ratings for a 15 ft bridge configuration of the ATL. Additional mission profiles and ATL capabilities that we’ll be highlighting in upcoming High Angle Solutions features include:

  • Litter / Hoisting / Drag
  • Confined Space
  • Structural Collapse
  • Disaster Response
  • VBSS / Pool Hooking
  • Rescue and TACEVAC
  • Stay tuned for more information.

    The Atlas Tactical Ladder system can be used as a Ladder, Litter and Bridge. Because it is collapsible, it can be jumped and you only need to carry the sections you require. The sections are removable and you can add sections to the 7′ standard length to bring it out to 15′. It has a 350 lbs rating with a 2:1 safety factory, and that’s in the bridge mode!

    IMG_0225.JPG

    In addition to integrated handholds the ATL RACC also has an integrated patient packaging harness and vertical/horizontal hoisting bridle.

    IMG_0227.JPG

    The multi handle autolocks into various positions and can be used as a pool hook while in the Ladder mode or an offset handle in the Litter mode. You can also turn the litter into a table to get your patient off of the ground or to elevate head or feet.

    IMG_0224.JPG

    The ATL RACC can be carried on the MSIG pack we showed you last year via speed clips. However, you can use the MSIG frame to package your patient’s torso and head.

    SOFIC 2014 – Atlas Devices – Sled Dog Pack from PMK Solutions

    Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

    The guys at Atlas Devices showed us a new product developed by PMK Solutions (USAF PJ) called the Sled Dog Pack. We’ll give you a sneak peek and follow up soon with a full article.

    20140521-231425.jpg

    Designed specifically for PJs and Medics, the heart of the Sled Dog Pack is the aluminum frame sheet (for stability and durability) that integrates PALS Compatible slots into the design called MSIG for MOLLE System Integrated Gear.

    20140521-231443.jpg

    The MSIG offers shoulder straps and a padded yoke and lumbar which is removable to accommodate armor. The MSIG pouches include a micro haul kit, crash axe and GP pouch.

    20140521-231554.jpg

    It also incorporates a Removable waist belt called the MARCH Belt (Massive, Hemorrhaging, Airway, Respiration, Circulation, Hypothermia). MARCH is a trauma treatment protocol and the belt is configured specifically to support that treatment. Internally, the sleeve offers pockets for casualty cards and chem lights and the outer area offers two rows of PALS webbing. The sleeve accepts load rated belts. The pouches mounted from left to right support the MARCH acronym.
