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: 120kts
  • Parachute landing speed: 15-30 mph
  • System mass: 1.6kg

Grifaid Aquafilter Custom System

air-drop-box-grifaidWe were able to adapt our box to fit the Grifaid Aquafilter’s community filter system, creating an environmentally-friendly air droppable water filter.

Grifaid’s filters produce safe water on demand and are designed to last for a minimum of 5 years, requiring no spare parts, cartridges, or electricity.

The greatest challenge in delivering the filters is shock mitigation upon landing due to the fragile nature of the filtration membrane. By adapting AirDropBox’s energy dampening material we are able to greatly reduce this shock to well below acceptable levels and lab testing on flown systems have proved that the integrity and performance of the filter remain unchanged once dropped using the AirDropBox.
