Air Trailer Concept for M113 Gavin Force v2.0

  1. 1. J arnot A erospace C orporation TM CONCEPT Employ Conventional Fixed-Wing Aircraft to Tow Simple Cargo Autogyro Gliders to Deliver Cargo with Near Helicopter-Like Precision to Remote Areas Why an Autogyro? Why Not A Fixed-Wing Glider? Autogyros Can Not Stall: Enabling a More Stable, Slower, More Vertical Decent & LandingProprietary Jarnot Aerospace Corporation Data, All Rights Reserved
  2. 2. J arnot A erospace C orporation TM PROVEN CONCEPT with UPDATED TECHNOLOGY Examples World War II Autogyro Towed Gliders Examples Present Day Recreational Autogyro Towed GlidersProprietary Jarnot Aerospace Corporation Data, All Rights Reserved
  3. 3. J arnot A erospace C orporation TM Towed Cargo Autogyro JA-1A Half Ton  1,000 lbs (Half Ton) Cargo  Large Cargo Volume (154 cubic ft)  Loads 12 ft Long Cargo  Skid, Wheeled or Float Water Landing Gear  Towed by Cessna 172, 208B Caravan, Super Cub etc.  Accurate Helo-Like Delivery  Near-Disposable Wooden Fuselage ($500)  High Use Steel Frame Fuselage ($2,000)  Rotor Head & Blades Removable ($2,000) for Easy Return on Light Aircraft or Ground TransportProprietary Jarnot Aerospace Corporation Data, All Rights Reserved

J arnot A erospace C orporation TM JA-1A Half Ton NEAR HELO-LIKE DELIVERY Towing Aircraft Flies Over Landing Zone (LZ) to Access Winds 1 then Releases Air Trailer on Return Pass Short of LZ Air Trailer Rotor Angle Increases 50-150 ft 2 and Begins Deceleration Air Trailer Flares for 3 Near Zero Ground Roll Six Air Trailer Rotor Heads & Blades Fit into a Air Trailer for Return via an Air Strip Near By or For Easy Ground Transport 100-300 ft Landing ZoneProprietary Jarnot Aerospace Corporation Data, All Rights Reserved
  9. 9. J arnot A erospace C orporation TM JA-1A Half Ton Low Cost Near Helicopter Delivery  REMOTE AREAS: Alaska-Canada-Philippines-South America  Hunting-Fishing Lodges, Including Delivery of Fishing Boats!  Oil & Gas Exploration and Pipeline Support  Oil Rig Platform Re-Supply  Mail and Parcel Delivery  HOMELAND SECURITY DISASTER RELIEF:  Emergency Medical /Survival Supplies  Rapid Food Distribution  Water Bomber for Forest Fires  MILITARY RESUPPLY (Avoids Land Mines & Ground Convoy Ambushes)  Air Trailer Towed by UH-60 or Caravan Avoids Brown Out & Carries 50% More Cargo  Rapid FOL or FARP Insertion & Setup  Enables Scout-Attack Helicopters to Deliver Cargo  Enables M113 Gavin Force to maneuver away from FOB indefinitely via air re-supply  FIXED-WING UAV CAPABLE: (Low-Cost Towing by Fixed-Wing Automated to be UAS)Proprietary Jarnot Aerospace Corporation Data, All Rights Reserved
  10. 10. J arnot A erospace C orporation TM JA-1A Half Ton More Cargo Weight & Space, Greater Accuracy & Lower Cost Over Para-Drop  MORE CARGO: For a Given Towing Aircraft Gross Weight, the Added Lift of Gliders Results in about 50% More Payload than What the Aircraft Could Have Carried Alone, Albeit at a slower speed  BETTER OUTSIZE CARGO CAPACITY: Most Aircraft Cargo Areas have Limited Space, Air Trailer Enables Large Volume to Facilitate Parcel-Mail Delivery Where Cubic Footage is More Important Than Cargo Weight  GREATER ACCURACY THAN PARA-DROP: Parachuting Cargo in Remote Areas Requires at least 500-700 ft Altitude Above the Ground to Allow the Chute to Open, Air Trailer is Already “Flying” and can be Delivered with as Little as 50 feet Above Ground Altitude Enabling Far Greater Accuracy  LOWER COST THAN PARADROP: Parachuting Cargo Requires Large Specialized Aircraft with Ramps with Costly Rigger Support and Uses Costly “Dumb” Parachutes and Expensive Cargo Bags (i.e. A-22), the Air Trailer cost less than a Comparable Cargo Chute, Needs no Rigger Support and Can Deliver More Cargo per Sortie than a Comparable Cargo Aircraft can Para-drop  LEVERAGES LOW-COST, FIXED-WING AIRCRAFT: Air Trailer Enables the Use of Low- Cost Utility Fixed-Wing Aircraft Such as Agriculture Spraying Aircraft to carry Large Volume, Heavy Weight Cargo and Deliver to Remote Areas with Near Helicopter-Like Precision at Less Than 20% the Cost of Helo-Delivered Cargo...Proprietary Jarnot Aerospace Corporation Data, All Rights Reserved
