Flight design tests of the new Kadet-100 parachute system have been completed in Russia, as reported by the press service of the Technodinamika holding of the Rostec State Corporation. The new parachute will be handed over to state tests by the end of 2021.
It is specified that the Kadet-75 parachute system confirmed the minimum safe altitude of 150 m at the speed of the aircraft 180 km/h. The descent time on a fully filled main parachute was at least 10 seconds, as stated by the CEO of Technodinamika Holding Igor Nasenkov.
As reported, Kadet-75 is a training parachute system with a round dome, which provides step-by-step training in the skills of separation from the aircraft and free-fall skills with the transition to manual parachute deployment. It is suitable for landing at an aircraft speed from 80 to 280 km/h from altitudes up to 4,000 m with a total flight weight of up to 120 kg.
The parachute has increased the stability of the dome, while it allows performing a full turn in no more than 12 seconds. The average value of the vertical rate of descent in section 30-35 m from the ground is no more than 5 m/s.
In the line of “Kadets” developed by the ‘Polyot’ Ivanovo parachute Plant, three parachute systems with a round dome are presented. In addition to the “Kadet-75”, there are also “Kadet-100” and “Kadet-100D”, designed not only for training but also for combat jumps, which can be performed with full-service weapons and equipment.
