New reserve parachute testing seeks to eliminate potential premature activations | US Army

The Airborne and Special Operations Test Directorate (ABNSOTD) conducted 23 risk reduction jumps with the T-11R Single Pin Troop reserve parachute. This test will ensure that the parachute works from both rotary winged and fixed-winged high-performance aircraft to eliminate the potential for premature reserve activations. All airdrop test iterations were airdropped with Soldiers in full combat equipment as if they were jumping into a combat operation.
