MTSI, Vita Inclinata Technologies Explore Rapid Tethered Tech Deployment - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Modern Technology Solutions Inc. and Vita Inclinata Technologies have collaborated to explore the integration of tethered technologies into the U.S. Air Force's C-130 and C-17 aircraft systems.

MTSI said Friday it seeks to field the Rapid Aerial Employment System along with Vita Inclinata's Hoist Rescue Load Stability System to help fixed-wing aircraft units deliver medical supplies and retrieve payloads within confined and urban areas.

The RAES is designed to help fixed-wing aircraft extract and deliver payloads at a high altitude while LSS works to control the motion of suspended cargo.

“This collaboration will allow for two-way cargo operations at distance and in the urban, maritime, and arctic regions once denied to our U.S. Air Force while saving time, money, assets and more importantly lives,“ said Peter LeHew, co-inventor of RAES and a project lead at MTSI.

The two entities plan to deploy the combined platform in the fourth quarter of 2020.
