FLU-8 and FLU-9
Automatic Life Preserver Inflator
When aircrew eject over a body of water, it is critical that their
flotation devices inflate automatically. The Universal Inflator
designed by Stratus Systems is a direct replacement for the current
FLU-8 (U.S. Navy) and FLU-9 (U.S. Air Force) automatic life preserver
inflation devices for ejection seated aircraft. Stratus Systems has a
complete line of automatic inflators to meet your specific needs.
FLU-8 and FLU-9
- Increased Reliability
Predictable Activation Time (3 +/- 2 sec.)
Reduced Life Cycle Cost
Environmental Protection To MIL-STD-810
Non-Hazardous Classification For Shipping and Storage
UWARSThe UWARS/NG offers a service life of six years and a shelf life of nine
years. To extend service life, the system utilizes advanced lithium
coin cells, which are readily available and easily replaced if required.
Next Generation Universal Water Activated Parachute Release System for Ejection Seated Aircraft. Following ejection over water, a pilot’s parachute can create drag and
pose a serious danger. By automatically separating crewmembers from
their parachutes during these emergency situations, Stratus Systems’
UWARS/NG product enhances survivability. UWARS/NG is designed to meet the stringent performance and environmental
resistance requirements for high performance aircraft. Its “Built-In
Test” will indicate a “Go/No-Go” system status by measuring battery
condition, circuit continuity and electro-explosive-device continuity. A
single flash of an imbedded green LED indicates a “Go” condition.
- Sea Water Activated
Operates Within 2.0 Seconds After Water Immersion
Fits Both Left and Right Hand Parachute Release Fittings
Built-In-Test, No Support Equipment Required
Compact and Symmetrical
Self Contained, No Assembly Required
Commercial Off-The-Shelf Batteries
SEA WATER ACTIVATED RELEASE SYSTEM (SEAWARS)
If aircrew members are unconscious or injured, they
cannot manually disconnect their parachutes. Aircrew may become
entangled in the shroud lines and drown. The parachute may act as a
sail, dragging the aircrew member across the water or fill with water
and become a sea anchor, pulling the crew member under. Survival
depends upon fast separation from the parachute. Water activated
parachute releases save lives.
- Proven design – over water ejection survival rates have increased with usage of SEAWARS and a FLU-8.
- Left and right water sensing units installed onto parachute harness.
- Requires assembly off aircraft.
- In service world-wide.
