THE CENTERLINE VERTICAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM (CVRS) BY CAPEWELL AERIAL SYSTEMS IS EFFECTIVE, EASY TO INSTALL AND COMBAT-PROVEN
The CVRS is designed for use on the C-130 aircraft to provide vertical and lateral restraint of Container Delivery System (CDS) containers during flight and throughout the airdrop phase. The CVRS permits the airdrop of up to twelve A-22 containers from each side of the aircraft. Each container can be rigged and airdropped in a single pass, for a total of 24 individual containers, or all 24 can be airdropped simultaneously. The CVRS was designed to accommodate 48” plywood skidboards; however, 48”x 53.5” and 48”x 96” plywood skidboards may be airdropped with the CVRS installed by rotating the skidboard(s) 90 degrees to allow the 48” side to fit between the CVRS and the aircraft dual rails. The CVRS uses the existing tiedown rings in the aircraft and provides a similar set of tiedown rings as replacement. No special tools are required to install the CVRS. A team of two people can install or remove the CVRS in less than 30 minutes. The CVRS delivers ease of operation and proven reliability in combat situations. This system is widely used by the US Military and allied nations world-wide.
