The United States Air Force Air Mobility Command Systems Group (AMC SG) at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base has awarded Safety of Flight Approval for GPS Source's GLI kits aboard US Air Force C-130 (E/H/J models) and C-17 aircraft.
Safety of Flight Approval confirms the safe operation of GLI kits aboard military aircraft. It also provides an official USAF account of the testing which was accomplished in order to grant full flight approvals.
Robert Horton, CEO of GPS Source, said, "Supporting our military with first class products like our GLI kits is an honor. It is important that the United States Air Force considers them to be safe and effective in supporting HAHO or HALO, SOF parachutists, precision airdrop capability and time-critical applications during humanitarian relief operations. The military can depend on our kits in the most extreme situations."
The GPS Source GLI-kits enables an end user to perform JPADS and Military Free Fall (MFF) Missions with guaranteed mission equipment compatibility, greater ease and reliability. The mil-spec designed systems ensure 100% GPS L1/L2 signal coverage throughout the cargo compartment and flight deck of any medium to large military transport aircraft.
