Lot Summary

With a priority date of 2003, this portfolio offers benefits for parachutes, including:

1. A method and design of automated parachute activation devices that can reliably determine chute release time in low altitude jump scenarios that are typical of military jumps and precision airdrop. The system incorporates partial or complete capture of freefaller or tethered parachute jumper kinematics to rapidly and reliable determine when to automatically activate deployment of the primary or reserve chute. The system uses one or more devices for directly measuring acceleration, velocity and/or position in addition to air pressure change to enable reliable detection of chute deployment conditions earlier than is possible with conventional pressure change activated automated activations devices. The devices used by the invention may include MEMS accelerometers and/or a MEMS gyroscope. [US 7,073,752]
