The EMA is a mechanical rip cord puller that is triggered by an electrical pulse from an AGU or electronic AAD. The EMA allows the use of a conventional rip cord instead of a pyrotechnic loop cutter which has traditionally been the only option for mechanical action that is triggered by a computer or AAD.
The Gen-3 EMA has on board batteries and only requires a low current trigger pulse to activate (consistent with an AAD) and the Gen-4 requires a sustained power signal from the host when activated. The Gen-4 EMA was made for a sub-orbital rocket that had on board power, and uses a different spring design that allowed us to increase the pull stroke and maintain a more consistent pull force throughout out the entire stroke.
If you are interested in the EMA and what it can / could do for you, we would be happy to talk to you about your application
AIR DROP AUTOMATIC PARACHUTE TRIGGER
The ADAPT is the most innovative and intelligent automatic activation device ever conceived. A need for a new, flexible automatic parachute opener was identified thus the ADAPT Project was born.
PNEUMATIC RELEASE TIMER
Pneumatic Release Timer, (PRT), is a reusable, factory preset, mechanical timer that is designed to release cargo parachutes and replace timed pyrotechnic cutters.
PARACHUTE FLIGHT DATA RECORDER
Built under contract for the U.S.D.A. Forest Service Smoke Jumpers, the Free Fall Accessories, Inc. Parachute Flight Data Recorder, (PFDR), was designed to measure and record all aspects of descent while under a round or square canopy.
SMALL INSERTION BUNDLE
The Free Fall Accessories, Inc. Small Insertion Bundle System, (SIBS), was developed to provide a means to insert small equipment and survival gear into remote areas, quickly, reliability, and cost effectively. The SIBS can be easily clipped to a load, and static lined from a small aircraft, with little training required.
