Some of the weapons and ammunition that were airdropped by the coalition aircraft fighting ISIS in Iraq and Syria , missed the planned drop zones and fell directly to the hands of the terrorist organization. This was no surprise, as the precise airdropping of supplies has always been a challenge.
While high-altitude airdrops often miss the target , low-level Para drops face significant dangers from enemy fire, and reduce delivery range.
In recent years , technology helps to solve the problem – GPS-guidance systems that enables precision weapons to hit the target with super accuracy , coupled with software that acts as a flight control system for parachutes , are supposed to do the job.
