Precision Container Aerial Delivery System

 a Wildfire, Humanitarian Aid & Disaster Response Tool

PCADS™ HALO (US PATENT #9,138,604 B2) IS THE ONLY CAFFS SYSTEM THAT CAN RELEASE LIQUID LOADS AT HIGH ALTITUDES THAT FREEFALL HUNDREDS OR THOUSANDS OF FEET TO THE PLANNED LOW ALTITUDE TARGET HEIGHT FOR OPENING.

01

HIGHER SAFETY PROFILE WITH AIR DROP

DIVE BOMBS ARE NO LONGER REQUIRED ON FINAL APPROACH TO RELEASE LIQUIDS AT DESIRED ALTITUDES USING HALO AIR DROP SOP. 

PCADS DEPLOY USING THE SAME SOP THAT THE USAF DEVELOPED IN WWII, WHICH WAS FIRST DEPLOYED BY THE AUSSIES IN WWI.  AIR DROP IS A SAFE AND EFFECTIVE MEANS OF DELIVERING AID AND LIQUIDS IN THE WORLDS HARSHEST ENVIROMENTS.

03

OPERATIONAL USE

PCADS IS A PRECISION AIR DROP SYSTEMS (ADS) THAT DEPLOYS WITH OUR PATENTED HALO TIME DELAY. HALO ENABLES AIRCRAFT TO FLY MISSIONS 24/7, SAFE AND HIGH FROM 500FT TO 5000FT ABOVE GROUND LEVEL (AGL), AWAY FROM LOW ALTITUDE DANGERS, NO MATTER THE WEATHER.  

05

MORE LIQUIDS

PCADS IS A CONSUMABLE, MEANING THE CARGO BAY IS EMPTY AFTER DEPLOYMENT.  THERE ARE NO HEAVY OR LARGE TANKING SYSTEMS, ENABLING PCADS TO DROP MULTIPLE TIMES MORE LIQUIDS THAN TRADITIONAL AIRTANKERS.

FOR EXAMPLE, WITH THE EXISTING MAFFS SYSTEM C-130 AIRCRAFT ARE LIMITED TO A MAXIMUM OF 3,000 USG, (2,600 USG ON AVG), WITH PCADS  THE VOLUME DELIVERED WITH C-130/L-100 AIRFRAMES RANGES FROM 4,400 TO 6,600 USG AND UPTO 11,000 USG WITH C-17 GLOBEMASTER III, CREATING THE WORLDS LARGEST CAPACITY AIRTANKER.

02

COST & CAPACITY

PCADS IS A GENERIC AIR DROP SYSTEM KNOWN AS "CDS" OR CONTAINER DELIVERY SYSTEM.  THAT MAKES PCADS MISSIONS RAPIDLY SCALABLE FOR USE WITH THOUSANDS OF EXISTING AIRCRAFT WITHOUT MODIFICATIONS.

 

PCADS LIQUID VOLUMES DELIVERED ON C-130 MODELS RANGES FROM 4,400 TO 6,600 USG AND WITH C-17 AT 11,000 USG, RAPIDLY TRANFORMING IT INTO THE WORLDS LARGEST AIRTANKER.

RAPIDLY DEPLOYABLE WITH:

VLATS: C-130 | C-17 | KC-390

LATS:  CASA-295 |  C-27

ROTORS:  CH-47 | CH-53 | V-22

HALO - ALLOWS SAFE AIR DROP MISSIONS INTO WILDFIRES AND UNFRIENDLY AREAS GLOBALLY WITHOUT PUTTING THE AIRCRAFT OR CREWS (BOTH AIR AND GROUND) IN HARMS WAY.

DIRECT ATTACK AT NIGHT

IN 2020, THE LARGEST C-130 OPERATOR IN AERIAL FIREFIGHTING DID A NIGHTITME STUDY PROVING ITS 10X MORE EFFECTIVE TO DIRECT ATTACK FIRES (WITH WATER ENHANCERS VS SUPPRESSION CHEMS) AT NIGHT.  IN THE US DIRECT ATTACK WITH LATS & VLATS IS NOT AUTHORIZED DUE TO DANGEROUS DIVE BOMB AND LOW ALTITUDE MANEUVERS.  PCADS CAN FOREVER CHANGE AGE OLD TACTICS AND BRING MASSIVE CAPACITY AND
