iHLS TV Special report – GPS for accurate airdrops

This post is also available in: עברית (Hebrew)

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.
