The Marine Corps received two proposals for the the Enhanced Multi-Mission Parachute System procurement contract and will obligate $2.3 million on the first delivery order, the Defense Department said Friday.

Work will occur in Pennsauken, New Jersey, through Jan. 5, 2023.

Airborne Systems said Friday it will equip E-MMPS with the company’s Hi-5 Ram Air Parachute, Edge harness container and STORM drogue release system, as well as an attachable military working dog harness.
