All USAF Rescue Squadrons specialize in combat search and rescue (CSAR) operations, often in hostile and remote environments. Their mission set includes personnel recovery, medical evacuation, and disaster response. These challenging missions demand precision aerial delivery of critical life saving and sustaining equipment into difficult to access regions. Onyx's RAMT, with its cutting-edge modularity and rapid configuration features, can significantly improve the Rescue Squadron's operational capabilities.
RAMT is a highly customizable and adaptable modular aerial delivery system designed to meet the needs of military operations. Its modular design allows for a wide range of payloads to be delivered, including equipment, supplies, and personnel. The system's scalability and flexibility enable it to be deployed quickly and efficiently, making it ideal for rapid response missions.
One of the key advantages of RAMT is its ability to operate in challenging environments, including warzones, disaster areas, and remote locations. This allows military personnel to receive critical supplies and support, even in the most difficult conditions. RAMT also offers improved safety and security for military operations. Its advanced control and communication systems allow for precise delivery and tracking of payloads, reducing the risk of loss or damage. Its modular design makes it easier to maintain and repair, ensuring that it remains operational and effective in the field.
Overall, RAMT offers a highly adaptable and efficient solution for military operations. Its ability to customize payloads, scalability, and adaptability make it ideal for a wide range of missions.
RAMT has several key features that set it apart from traditional aerial delivery systems. These features include:
RAMT was designed with challenging operations in mind, and embodies Onyx's core qualities of versatility and innovation:
Overall, the RAMT modular aerial delivery system offers a highly customizable and adaptable solution for aerial delivery operations. Its inflatable barrel system, continuous shock mitigation strapping system, integrated modular wheel carriage, and agnostic connection to any parachute system make it a versatile and efficient system for a wide range of delivery needs.
RAMT offers several benefits to its end-users in both tactical and civilian rescue missions. Some of these benefits include:
The RAMT modular aerial delivery system offers several key benefits to the Air Force Pararescue Squadrons. Its rapid deployment, customizable payloads, enhanced safety features, flexible delivery options, and improved efficiency make it a valuable asset in both tactical and civilian rescue missions.
A Special Operations unit was involved in a high-stakes recovery mission to retrieve a space capsule and its crew of astronauts from remote areas of the Atlantic Ocean. The unit had to work within the limitations of the Hard Duck and RAM-B aerial delivery methods currently used by the pararescue units, including their large footprint inside the aircraft and on the ramp.
One of the key challenges encountered during the mission was the size and footprint of the Hard Duck and RAM-B systems. Both of these systems required a significant amount of space in the aircraft and on the ramp, which limited the amount of other equipment and supplies that could be transported. This limitation can be a significant problem in high-stakes recovery missions where a large amount of equipment and supplies are needed to ensure the safety and well-being of the recovery team and the astronauts. The deployment packages also took up a lot of space on the ramp which increased the complexity and risk of jump mastering and parachutist deployment.
In addition to their large footprint, the Hard Duck and RAM-B systems can also be complex and time-consuming to set up and deploy. These systems require specialized aircraft and significant preparation time, which can limit their flexibility and response time in emergency situations. This limitation can also impact the safety of the recovery team, as delays in deployment can increase the risk of accidents and injuries.
To address such challenges at hand, Onyx designed RAMT - a modular air delivery system - that is both highly versatile and customizable and offers a range of benefits for both the pararescue combat and civilian mission sets. Its ability to rapidly deploy customizable payloads, agnostic connection to any parachute system, enhanced safety features, and improved efficiency make it a valuable asset for any mission.
For pararescue combat missions, RAMT offers a rapid deployment of critical supplies and equipment, allowing for quick response in emergency situations. Its customizable payloads and flexible delivery options allow for tailored delivery to specific mission requirements while its enhanced safety features protect critical medical supplies and equipment during delivery.
For civilian rescue missions, RAMT’s ability to rapidly deploy and efficiently deliver supplies and equipment can help save lives and reduce human suffering in emergency situations. Its flexibility and adaptability make it ideal for a wide range of humanitarian missions, and its enhanced safety features ensure that critical supplies and equipment are delivered in optimal condition.
RAMT’s mission-enhancing effect and versatile capabilities make it an unmatched asset for both tactical and civilian mission sets, providing critical support in emergency situations and helping to save lives and improve outcomes for those in need.
Special Operations units involved in high-stakes recovery missions such as the retrieval of space capsules and its crew from remote maritime locations should explore alternative aerial delivery methods, such as RAMT, to better meet the unique demands of high-stakes recovery missions in multi-domain environments.
These methods should be more modular and flexible, with a smaller footprint in the aircraft and on the ramp. RAMT was designed with the end-user in mind, is easy to set up, use, and maintain in the field, making it an ideal fit for such multi-domain missions.
By adopting more advanced and modular aerial delivery systems, special operations pararescue units can better ensure the safety and success of any high-stakes recovery mission while increasing the flexibility and responsiveness of its operations.
