Dismounted soldier recovery can be challenging in the face of adversity.
Even with the Battle Management System (BMS) displaying a location, injuries may mean a tough, manhandled extraction from a difficult environment.
Pilots forced to eject from their aircraft may also land in unfavorable environments, with injuries or broken bones.
Recovery missions into tough terrain may often preclude recovery vehicles and apparatus being utilised.
This is where our soldier worn recovery system may be utilised. Weighing very little, it can be worn under a parachute, or within cams and be activated by rescuing personnel without special tools or equipment.
The system turns into a spine board, strapping injured personnel into rigid positions to avoid further injuries. Handles make for easy grab-and-go movements, by a single person if required - leaving one hand free to utilise personal weapons.
