The main characteristics taken into account for the Cylindron project
- The apparatus of
expulsion of the pod containing the parachute, consisting of a cylinder
and a quick discharge valve with high characteristics of functional
reliability deriving directly from the experience of the launchers Aircone
- Cylinder watertight
shutter double sealed, charged with air compressed to 150 bar.
- Launch system lever or
pull handle connected via bowden cable. There are safeguards to prevent accidental operation.
- Pod in mylar e trilam for
a high level protection of the parachute. Thanks to his "bullet"
shape and and the high amount of kinetic energy, the pod is able to
overcome many of the obstacles in its path during launch. , If correctly
fixed ,the parachute protected therefore is opened far away from the
aircraft structure and any accompanying turbulence.
resistance lightweight alloy launch tube with breech and strengthens. The
high resistance of this element makes launching possible even if damaged
or imprisoned by aircraft structure as for example in a collision or from
inflight structural failure.
- The possibility
to adapt the launcher attachment to the aircraft using customized solutions; This allows, at the time of installation, the maximum flexibility in choosing the direction of launch.
resistance materials used in the construction, commonly used in
aeronautical production. All the components are produced with CNC
- Double coating paint
guarantees high resistance to atmospheric and ambient factors
- The parachute
is made from controlled porosity material and through a direct opening
pod, provides a very quick deployment. The forces acting on the aircraft
can reach as much as 5 g of deceleration. Always make sure the bridle is
attached to a solid part of the aircraft structure in case of necessity it
is recommended share strain in two or more position. Maximum velocity at
the time of deployment should not exceed 130 km/h, (80 mph). The pendulum
effect is reduced.
- The control lines
connected to the shroud can be lengthened by a high resistance steel
cable protected by a plastic sheath, or with suitable plastic rope with
adequate resistance. The full length of the lines should be such that no
part of the aircraft comes into contact with the lines. The control line
length of the parachute is 3 meters
- The bridle is
made from synthetic fibres able to withstand a breaking strain of 7000 kg
steel carabiners of the Maillon Rapide type with double screw lock having
a breaking strain of at least 5500kg.
