EXTRACTION PARACHUTE JETTISON SYSTEM (EPJS)


A malfunction during an attempted airdrop delivery of heavy equipment to the battlefield risks the safety of the entire crew and the aircraft itself. The capacity of jettisoning extraction parachutes when they are outside the aircraft before the load has been extracted is essential. Currently, if a malfunction occurs the loadmaster must get behind the load and cut away the extraction parachutes by hand. This is very dangerous because the load could break away while the loadmaster is cutting the lines. The Extraction Parachute Jettison System (EPJS) concept has been developed to jettison malfunctioning parachutes quickly and safely.
