Precision Air-Drops System


After being dropped from high altitude, The Joint Precision Airdrop System (JPADS) uses GPS and a guidance, navigation and control system to accurately fly itself to a designated location point on the ground. Its gliding ram-air parachute lets it land a significant distance from its point of release, while its guidance allows high-altitude airdrops to a single location or multiple locations at one time, within an accuracy of 50 – 75 meters.
