ADB Backpack Mini – Shipping now

adb backpack miniThe Backpack Mini has been designed to allow the reuse of the load container as a backpack making a very effective way of moving a 20kg payload from a drop site.

It also provides an extremely useful container for transporting water, fuel & firewood or anything else that may need to be carried.

The Backpack uses the standard mini parachute & EDM system as the Mini Box providing the same ease of use and preparation as well as protecting the payload from shock.

  • Payload mass: 5-20kg (10kg nominal)
  • Payload volume: 33 litres
  • Minimum release altitude: 350 feet
  • Maximum release airspeed: 130kn
  • Parachute landing speed: 15-30 mph
  • System mass: 1.6kg

Interested? For more information please contact us or call +44 1732 820455.

Drone & UAV Air Drop System – NEW launched at Farnborough International 2018

Due to popular demand we have utilised aspects of our original ADB Micro drop system and developed a small payload low altitude delivery system for use with UAV’s and Drones.

Through careful redesign and testing we now have a fast opening system that is ideally suited to low altitude drops matching the flight profile typical of unmanned & autonomous aircraft whilst also retaining the shock mitigation properties and payload integrity offered by our larger systems.

The payload weight range and physical system dimensions can be tailored to suit specific applications however additional origination charges and minimum order quantities may apply.

Quotations and samples are available on request.
