Additional Information

This new style 15 Ft. Cargo Extraction Parachute was developed in the late 1980’’s for extracting the 28 Ft. Heavy Duty Extraction Parachute used on the LAPES system platform loads. The 15 Ft. Canopy has 16 gores, each of which contains 5 rings, using the latest U.S. Military patterns for the required material. The 15 Ft. packed assembly weighs approximately 20 pounds.

The canopy and deployment bag are the same as on the older assembly, P/N 61A4312, with the reefing line and extraction line omitted and replaced by the adapter web, P/N 68C380-10, which connects directly to the 28’’ Heavy Duty Deployment Bag.

All 15 Ft. Cargo Extraction Assemblies are manufactured using the latest revision of material listed in Technical Data.
