WHAT'S HALO? & HOW IS IT SAFER?
PCADS™ HALO Time Delay (US Patent #9,138,604 B2) is the ONLY Aerial Firefighting & liquid air drop system in existence that can release the load at High Altitude which freefalls hundreds or thousands of feet to its Low Altitude target height for Opening, once the timer activates.
How is it safer? PCADS™ delivers impressive coverage levels, on target every time, at altitudes from 350-5000+ft Above Ground Level (AGL) from a level flight profile, no longer requiring dive bombing. ZERO current airtankers can deploy like PCADS™ HALO, making it the SAFEST, most PRECISE and scalable Aerial Firefighting tool.
