Air Droppable 4-6 Men LR  or  6-10 Men Life Raft

The Aeromiltec Helicopter Aerial Rescue Kit, is the most advanced search and rescue aerial deployed life raft system on the market. It is an air-to-sea rescue system which is manually deployed from rotary winged aircraft. Each kit that is deployed provides a 10 man life raft, with sufficient survival contents to sustain life for  4-6  Menor 6 – 10 persons for 24 hours.

Up to two kits, with a buoyant connecting rope, can be dropped, allowing refuge for 12 – 20 persons in one deployment pass. The system includes a drogue chute to slow and stabilise the descent to a safe velocity on water impact. An added feature is the option to disengage the drogue chute for low level drops. The Kit can be attached to military SAR helicopters and P-3 Orion aircraft but can be customised to other military aircraft types ,

Accuracy of delivery

The accuracy of delivery is enhanced by a proprietary water-activated device which inflates the life-raft upon the kit’s immersion in water and minimises wind drift during descent. The life-rafts are inflated upon water entry by a compressed gas cylinder. A fast-acting, automatically-deployed sea anchor improves raft inflation and stability characteristics. The life raft is packed in a way to promote a “right way up” attitude during inflation. The unit of a compact design that aids in handling, portability and storage. To increase life, the content are vacuum packed.

Survival Equipment Packed Inside of Life raft

Exhausted and possibly injured survivors do not have to spend additional energy trying to pull and lift the equipment into the raft as life saving equipment is packed into the life raft, ensuring quick and easy access a personal locator beacon (PLB) or CSEL can be also included .

Customisation of Military Survival Contents

The survival contents can be specified by the customer in order to suit the environment of use. Typically, items will include blankets, water, first aid kit, flares, PLB Radios , etc. Inflation at Sea Level

After water immersion, inflation of the life raft and deployment of a fast acting sea anchor is automatic. This is a major improvement over systems that inflate life rafts in the air and are prone to being blown out of position. The pack descends to the water quickly and by the time the life rafts inflate, the sea anchor is already deployed. Typically systems are deployed 

within 50 ft of target.

Easy Access

The buoyant, connecting rope guides survivors to the nearest life raft, creating an important lifeline to safety, especially in stormy conditions.

Aeromiltec F-20-B Life Rafts are manufactured with a durable polyurethane coated fabric, all Zodiac throw-over liferafts are assembled using the advanced SurvitecZodiac hot weld assembly technique called Thermobonding.

Being computer-controlled, Thermobonding eliminates the inconsistencies inherent in the old-fashioned gluing methods still used by other manufacturers. The fabric's chemical nature and the

Thermobonding process make Aeromiltec F-2B liferafts especially inert to aging factors in the marine environment and provides Survitec Zodiac throw-over liferafts with extreme strength and safety when loaded, an essential factor for this type of liferaft.

Due to the fabric weight and structure, Aeromiltec liferafts are easy to service and fit in light, small sized but remarkably strong, glass reinforced plastic (GRP) containers.
