CURRENT USERS - ROYAL THAI AIR FORCE
PCADS™ WON THE HEADS UP COMPETITION WITH THE ROYAL THAI AIR FORCE TO REPLACE THEIR MAFFS OPERATIONS. (BID WAS WON AGAINST THE GUARDIAN SYSTEM)
SINCE INCEPTION OF THEIR PCADS DIRECT ATTACK MISSIONS, THE RTAF HAVE BEEN VERY SUCCESSFUL IN REDUCING THE ASEAN HAZE POLLUTION FROM THEIR WILDFIRES BY DEPLOYING A FULL FRONTAL ATTACK OF ASSETS. THE RTAF IS USING EVERYTHING AT THEIR DISPOSAL INCLUDING SPY SATELLITES, DRONES, CLOUD SEEDING, TRADITIONAL AIRTANKERS, HELOS & PCADS FOR THE MOST EFFICIENT & EFFECTIVE RESPONSE.
THE ISRAELI AIR FORCE & FIRE SERVICE IS EVALUATING BOTH CAFFS SYSTEMS INCLUDING PCADS™ FROM LOW (500FT) AND HIGH ALTITUDES (1000-5000FT) ALONG WITH THE GUARDIAN SYSTEM ONLY FROM LOW ALTITUDE DUE TO ENGINEERING LIMITATIONS OF THEIR SIMPLE BOX.
PCADS™ HALO IS THE ONLY C-130 CONTRACTED "CAFFS" SYSTEM THAT IS BEING DEPLOYED ON LIVE FIRE OPERATIONS.
PCADS™ HALO TIME DELAY (US PATENT #9,138,604 B2) IS THE ONLY SYSTEM 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 PCADS™ HALO SAFER?
DIVE BOMBING INTO FIRE ZONES IS NO LONGER REQUIRED
PCADS IS THE ONLY TYPE OF AIRTANKER SYSTEM THAT DOES NOT HAVE TO DUMP THEIR LOAD IF THERE IS A CANCELLED MISSION.
GROUND SAFETY CAVEAT: ALL AIR DROP/AIRTANKER ACTIVITY IS DANGEROUS EVEN JUST LIQUIDS IF NOT PERFORMED PROPERLY AND CAL FIRE HAS A 1/4 MILE PERIMETER FOR ALL AIRTANKER ACTIVITY, WHICH WE ADVISE.
PCADS DEBRIS HAS BEEN GPS TRACKED BY US MILITARY OVER HUNDREDS OF DROPS DURING R&D/LIVE FIRE ACTIVITY AND IT ALL FALLS IN THE TARGETED ZONE WHERE THE LIQUIDS LAND
THE SURGE CAPACITY PROBLEM
