WHO ARE WE?

 

SAINT INDUSTRIES INC (SII) IS AN AERIAL DELIVERY COMPANY, AKA AIR DROP, THAT PROVIDES AIR DROP RELATED OEM PRODUCTS AND SERVICES.  IN 2002, WE WERE TASKED BY BOEING C-17 PHANTOM WORKS & THE US AIR FORCE TO CREATE A NEW "SURGE CAPABLE" AERIAL FIREFIGHTING SYSTEM.

 

THE GOAL WAS TO DEVELOP A SAFER, HIGHLY SCALABLE & MORE AFFORDABLE SYSTEM THAT'S GENERIC TO THOUSANDS OF EXISTING AIRCRAFT LIKE LOCKHEED MARTIN C-130/L-100, BOEING C-17 AND THE NEW EMBRAER KC-390 AIRLIFTERS.  

WE WERE SUCCESSFUL IN THAT GOAL AND HAVE BEEN HELPING MILITARIES FLY WILDFIRE MISSIONS SINCE 2016.

THIS SUCCESSFUL COLLABORATION INCLUDED INDUSTRY PARTNERS FROM BOEING C-17 PHANTOM WORKS, US MILITARY AIR DROP AND TEST & EVAL TEAMS FROM THE MAJOR COMMAND OF THE US AIR FORCE - AIR MOBILITY COMMAND (AMC), USAF ENGINEERING DIRECTORATE - AIR TRANSPORTABILITY TEST LOADING ACTIVITY (ATTLA), US ARMY NATICK SOLDIER RESEARCH CENTER (NSRDEC) AND THE AIR NATIONAL GUARD AND RESERVE TEST CENTER (AATC).

 

DURING OUR CONGRESSIONAL RESEARCH PROJECT, SII INVENTED & PATENTED PCADS ALONG WITH SAFETY AND DEPLOYMENT SYSTEMS SUCH AS HALO TIME DELAY AND INTRINSIC VERTICAL RESTRAINT, MAKING PCADS THE SAFEST AND MOST CAPABLE AERIAL FIREFIGHTING SYSTEM IN EXISTENCE.  PCADS IS DEPLOYABLE DAY AND NIGHT, FINALLY BRINGING A NEW VERY LARGE AIRTANKER (VLAT) TOOL WITH INCREASED CAPABILITIES TO THE WILDFIRE ARSENAL THAT IS NOT DEPENDENT ON MODIFIED AIRCRAFT OR SPECIALS CREWS AND NEVER GROUNDED IN RED FLAG HIGH WINDS OR OTHER EXTREME WEATHER CONDITIONS THAT GROUND TRADITIONAL AIRTANKERS (LATS/VLATS).

 

AIR DROP MIGHT BE NEW TO THE WILDLAND FIREFIGHTING WORLD, BUT PCADS ARE DEPLOYED FOLLOWING AGE OLD SAFE AND PRECISE TACTICS IN USE BY THE LARGEST AIR FORCES TO DELIVER AID AND SUPPLIES ANYWHERE SINCE WWI, THAT'S OVER 100 YEARS OF PRECISION AIR DROP!

 

TO DATE, PCADS IS THE ONLY CAFFS (CONTAINERIZED AERIAL FIREFIGHTING SYSTEM) DEVELOPED WITH INDUSTRY AND US MILITARY AIR DROP TEAMS, THAT WAS FUNDED BY CONGRESS AND CURRENTLY IN USE ON LIVE FIRES WITH C-130 AIRCRAFT ON DIRECT ATTACK AND SUPPRESSION MISSIONS.
