The Military Tandem Tethered Bundle with Load Assisted Release System (MTTB-LARS Gen 5) System used by governments around the world, is a parachute cargo delivery system that allows one parachutist to deliver a payload of between up to 400 pounds.
When the mission calls for added cargo carrying capacity Strong Enterprises has developed the MTTB system. This system allows the operator to carry additional cargo without the added burden of rucks. With multiple ways to land this system is highly versatile.
The cargo may be delivered by:
Landing with the parachutist.
Being released into freefall at a specified altitude (750 ft or greater)
Static Line release during freefall
Unmanned cargo system
The MTTB is a manually operated parachute cargo delivery system fitted with a 30-foot diameter canopy. The canopy is directly connected to the payload by a tether harness, with a swivel device incorporated to prevent twists. The cargo harness secures the payload with five lateral straps and two longitudinal straps. The straps can be quickly removed from the tether by the barrel harness quick-release box. Additional straps are provided for a cruise box container.
Range of Operation
Normal freefall parachute operational limitations apply with the MTTB. There are no altitude or speed restrictions, although opening altitudes are generally higher for additional safety.
Military freefall qualified parachutists can be trained in the operation and use of the MTTB system in conjunction with Strong Enterprise's Dual Hawk Tandem System.
