FlyClops 2K®

GUIDED PRECISION AERIAL DELIVERY SYSTEM

Fly Farther, Carry More, Land Softly

Overview

The FlyClops 2K is a unique, low-cost, one-time use Guided Precision Aerial Delivery System (GPADS) solution that eliminates recovery, maintenance and support requirements for payloads between 750-2200lb (340-998kg). The FlyClops 2K is a complete system that is an alternative and low cost option to our standard FireFly 2K system. We use a one-time use GPADS, and our one time use 2K1T canopy. Once deployed, the system need not be recovered. The reduction in initial cost and the lifecycle resource savings provide added operational flexibility.

It is delivered packed and ready for deployment. It requires only simple rigging to the payload.

KEY FEATURES

  • Supports operational payload between 700 – 2,200 lb (317.5 – 998 kg)
  • Lightweight, 77 lb (35 kg)
  • Delivered ready to use
  • Max release altitude of 17,500 ft (5334 m)

2K1T Canopy

The 2K1T parachute delivers the same high performance and capability as the 2K FireFly® parachute, but is designed to enable the soldier to cut the payload and guidance system free, leaving the parachute behind. Using the lower cost 2K1T parachute reduces the equipment cost of providing aerial supplies using GPADS should operational constraints dictate that the conventional FireFly® parachute cannot be recovered at the time. This option provides greater operational flexibility to commanders in the field.
