Troop Parachutes

Different tasks and individual conditions require specific solutions.

Under that slogan we have re-designed our RS-Troop Parachute family.

As a result we offer a Modular System of Troop Parachutes based on standardized components Harness, Deployment Bag and Pack Tray combined with individually different Canopies.

Our steerable, manoeuvrable or non-steerable Troop Parachutes are well appreciated for excellent performance, such as low rate of descent (16 ft/sec), high load capacity and perfect comfort.

Due to our special design it is possible to have safe jumps even under complicated meteorological conditions where other parachutes are subject to grounding.

We care for customers' individual requests.

Accuracy Parachutes

SPEKON´s Accuracy Parachutes are well known for years for excellent performance.

A special design allows low rate of descent and direct reactions without timely delays.

Jumpers equipped with our accuracy parachutes class RL- won more than 40 medals on military and civilian World Championships.

The German National Team obtained twice the team accuracy competition at CISM 2003 and 2007 Military World Championship with the RL-16/3.

Military significance of Free Fall Parachutes with accuracy quality has been increased explicitly. Considering this, we also offer Precision Parachutes for military application in special configuration.

Dry Storage System

This is an alternative to traditional and cost intensive storing methods for military equipment.

The Dry Storage Systems are used for proper storing of any kind of technical equipment - e.g. Tanks, Trucks, parts of Aircraft or Helicopter, all kinds of spares- under controlled humidity condition with minimum of maintenance and manpower for long periods.

No cost-intensive preservation of goods is required.

Optimized storing condition between 40-50% relative humidity are realized by integrated dehumidifier.

Different systems in standard sizes are available for outside or inside installation. Customized solutions are possible.

We co-operate with qualified partners for offering necessary equipment for paratroopers from top to toe.

Next to the parachute, our programme includes additional equipment like cargo bundle, weapon bag or oxygen systems, but also paratroopers' personal equipment, e.g Jump Suit, Helmet, Gloves, Altimeter etc.

We also offer services such as maintenance of the contracted hardware and training of the customer to qualify to use the hardware.
