The JPADS is an airdrop system that uses prepared geographic coordinates programmed into a computer system to guide the parachute to the ground within 100 meters of the drop zone.
This equipment includes the joint precision airdrop system, which is used by several services.
Due to these high costs, a 2010 RAND study recommended the use of fixed-wing aircraft for longer resupply flights, specifically advocating fixed-wing aircraft with the use of "JPADs (joint precision airdrop system) to deliver emergency supplies to FOBs (forward operating bases) and COPs (combat outposts) when the ground situation so requires." (20)
The addition of high-altitude, improved-container delivery systems and joint precision airdrop system (JPADS) platforms guided by the Global Positioning System has equipped our airlift fleet with both vertical and horizontal standoff capabilities.
"Winning the prize will mean I can develop and test the Airdrop system. It has the potential to help farmers around the world and I'm up for the challenge of rolling it out," he said.
The Joint Precision Airdrop System uses a GPS, avionics and motors to guide steerable parachutes to one or more landing zones simultaneously with the kind of precision made necessary by the rugged terrain of Afghanistan.
MCADS is the only airdrop system for large RIBs certified for use with Hercules and Boeing military aircraft and is also compatible with the floor of the new Airbus A400M military transport aircraft, which is due to be delivered in 2013.
precision airdrop system and low-cost, low-altitude airdrop systems that
New upgrades, like the Joint Precision Airdrop System, use global positioning that provides increased control upon release from the aircraft.
In Afghanistan, AMC uses technology for maximum effect by airdropping supplies with the Global Positioning System-guided parachutes of the Joint Precision Airdrop System, further reducing the number of troops in bottlenecked mountain passes.
SOCOM is searching for an advanced precision re-supply airdrop system capable of avoiding anti-aircraft weapons in areas "which denied use of airspace occurs due to political concerns."
The routine experiences of our combatant commanders and forces demonstrated that the Army required a much simpler and far-less-costly aerial resupply capability than that offered by expensive and complex precision high-altitude airdrop systems like the Joint Precision Airdrop System (JPADS).
