Airborne Systems’ DragonFly has been chosen by the US Army for aerial cargo and supplies delivery to operational areas in remote locations.

The DragonFly is a precision guided parachute delivery system that uses GPS and a guidance navigation and control system to steer its cargo load close to where troops are stationed.

The system, capable of carrying up to 10,000lbs, uses a gliding ram-air parachute to prevent it from landing dangerously close or far away from where troops are stationed.
