PCADS HALO - TIME DELAY

9-26-20 HALO REDONE V4.png

PCADS™ HALO Time Delay (US Patent #9,138,604 B2) is the ONLY Aerial Firefighting System in existence that can deliver impressive coverage levels, on target every time, at altitudes from 350-5000ft 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.

 

Please see OUR STORY for more information about PCADS™ history

PCADS™ Advantages over all other Large Fixed-Wing Aerial Firefighting Systems

 

Traditional Fixed-wing aerial firefighting is performed by former commercial airliners or repurposed war birds like C-130s, that are resurrected from airplane boneyards.   Conversions for these older aircraft like C-130s have significant costs involved in getting them airworthy again.  These conversions require AMP upgrades that cost $10M per aircraft to modernize the avionics, engines, cockpit glass and for structural upgrades to the wings and other systems.  For 737 conversions it takes 40,000+ hours of labor, tanking systems cost up to $9M and these systems have a life cycle as short as only 2 years of operations before needing major systems replaced. 

All of this initial startup cost, plus additional air support required for airtanker operations such as lead/spotter planes, and large mobilized ground teams makes PCADS substantially more affordable with alot smaller carbon footprint.  PCADS are operated with current military aircraft under the ANG or AFR and do not require any modifications at all, we can have every C-130 with a roller floor ready to drop in a very short amount of time of days not weeks, months or years.

Operational & Tactical Advantage:

 

Private & military fixed-wing operations provide fire suppression ONLY, with PCADS™ HALO, Incident Commanders now have the needed tool for Direct Attack, Suppression & SAR Missions for emergency evacuation with no modifications to the aircraft, during the same sortie, also known as, a Follow On missions.  Other aircraft might be multi mission capable, but NOT during the same sortie like PCADS™ and no other Aerial Firefighting aircraft are capable of multiple ship formations for direct attack en masse.

  • PCADS can fly 24/7, deploy safely at high or low altitudes & during high wind & high heat events, unlike all other Large Fixed-Wing Firefighting operational profiles

  • PCADS can deploy  at 150-5000ft AGL, regardless of drop altitude, using our patented HALO and IVR systems

  • PCADS don't require unsafe dive bombing into drop zones

  • PCADS are rapidly deployable & fully operational within a short time frame

  • PCADS require minimal ground crew 

COMPATIBLE AIRFRAMES

 

PCADS™ Capacity & Volumes Delivered Per Drop

PCADS™ vs LARGE AIR TANKER VOLUMES - MAFFS (I/II) 

 

In an Apples to Apples comparison using C-130J aircraft, a PCADS™ sortie delivers 37.5% MORE than the latest RADS system (4000 USG) and over DOUBLE current MAFFS operations (2700 USG).

Volume Per Drop

PCADS™ - 4,400 USG

MAFFS - 2,500 USG to 3,000 USG

PCADS™ Advantage vs MAFFS

PCADS™  +  1,400-1,900 USG

PCADS™  =  1.5 to 1.8 x VPD*

 

Volume Per Drop

PCADS™ - 5,500 USG

MAFFS - 2,500 USG to 3,000 USG

PCADS™ Advantage vs MAFFS

PCADS™  +  2,500-3,000 USG

PCADS™  =  1.8 to 2.2 x VPD

Volume Per Drop

PCADS™ - 11,000 USG

MAFFS - No Comparable System

C-17 PCADS™ vs PCADS™ w/C-130

C-17 PCADS™ + 5,500-6,600 USG

C-17 PCADS™  =  2 to 2.5 x VPD
