Airborne congratulates the LaRC LOFTID and ULA teams on a spectacular launch and deployment of the HIAD (Hypersonic Inflatable Aerodynamic Decelerator) technology. This ambitious mission further demonstrated the viability and value of the HIAD technology and raised the TRL to help integrate this exciting and innovative deceleration technology into America’s space programs.

Airborne is honored and proud to have supported LaRC in collaborating on the inflatable technology over the past decade, and for providing the parachute system that enabled the gentle LOFTID splashdown. We much appreciated the invitation to view the launch and track the mission progress, and look forward to further collaboration and the opportunity to integrate our technologies into future missions and applications.
