    systems can effectively support Special Operations capabilities of the U S military Onyx UL is a low cost GPS guided parachute system that is designed to meet the U S military s Joint Precision Air Drop System Ultra Light Weight JPADS ULW requirement of autonomously delivering payloads from 200 to 700 pounds In contrast to existing parachute airdrop methods that are performed at low altitude with poor accuracy the JPADS program was established to facilitate precision delivery of mission critical military payloads from high altitudes reducing the risk to troops and supply lines Onyx UL is part of a family of Onyx systems with different weight carrying capabilities that can precisely deliver payloads that range from small ground sensors and munitions to 2 200 pounds of mission critical supplies Onyx systems can also be equipped with the breakthrough industry first technology of flocking flight algorithms that enable multiple Onyx systems to safely share the same the airspace without risk of collision These innovative low cost systems give military planners the ability to strategically and covertly position equipment for rapidly moving ground and special operations forces dramatically increasing the odds for a successful mission Headquartered in Brooklyn N Y Atair Aerospace
