DefenCell: Military Logistics

Drop It

Military logistics are constantly pushing the limits of acceptable air drop altitudes. For C-130 pilots, dropping cargo from altitudes below 100 feet and pinpointing drops to within 10 to 15 meters is becoming standard operating procedure. Metallic cargo can easily be damaged at those altitudes as it does not have time to decelerate sufficiently. This limits the airdropping potential of metal-based force protection systems.

DefenCell consists entirely of geotextile material and can be dropped safely from altitude. The all-textile construction makes DefenCell highly compactable for easy palletisation. Up to five 463L airborne pallets of DefenCell can fit within a C-130 -- enough to create two 100 man forward operating bases with walls over 2.5m high and 70m long (total perimeter 600+ metres).
