Title
(EN) SHORT-HAUL ESCAPE SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE D'EVACUATION SUR COURTE DISTANCE
Abstract
(EN)
Short-haul escape system (10) includes line (12) for detechable suspension from support member (20) on airborne vehicle (22), load-carrying receptacle (24) attached to end (12B) of line (12), container (16) attachable to airborne vehicle (22) in proximity to support member (20) and releasably stowing parachute (14) such that parachute (14) can be pulled from container (16), and flexible strap (18) attached to parachute (14) stowed in container (16) and extending from container (16) and extending from container (16) and secured to line (12) such that upon detaching line (12) from support member (20) of airborne vehicle (22), which will cause line (12) and receptacle (24) to fall away from airborne vehicle (22), flexible strap (18) will pull parachute (14) from container (16) so that parachute (14) can inflate ans slow the fall of line (12) and receptacle (24) to a soft landing.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système d'évacuation sur courte distance (10) qui comprend une ligne (12) susceptible d'être détachée depuis un support (20) sur véhicule aéroporté (22), un réceptacle de charge (24) fixé à l'extrémité (12B) de la ligne (12), un contenant (16) susceptible d'être fixé au véhicule aéroporté (22) à proximité du support (20) et un parachute stocké et susceptible d'être déployé (14), par extraction de ce parachute (14) hors du contenant (16), ainsi qu'une sangle flexible (18) fixée au parachute (14) stocké dans le contenant (16), s'étendant depuis celui-ci (16) et fixée par ailleurs à la ligne (12), de sorte que le détachement de ladite ligne (12) depuis le support (20) du véhicule aéroporté (22), permettant à cette ligne (12) et au réceptacle (24) de tomber hors du véhicule (22), amène la sangle flexible (18) à déployer le parachute (14) hors du contenant (16), le parachute (14) se gonflant ensuite afin de ralentir la chute de la ligne (12) et du réceptacle (24) pour un atterrissage en douceur.
