PKH palletRapid deployment pallet Back to overview
These PKH pallets were developed to assist in a new solution to improve aircraft recovery. Aircraft recovery can be a complex and time consuming matter. To improve in the response time and actual time needed for the recovery, we developed rapid deployment pallets which interface with the recovery solution.
The PKH pallets are permanently equipped with a Rapid Recovery Solution (RRS) for the A380. The manufacturer of the newly developed, modular recovery solution RRS has found a unique way to allow controllable, continuous lifting over a changing angle, while maintaining extreme stability throughout the lift.
Lifting is arranged through inflating reinforced. During the lift, which could as heavy as 180 tons, the PKH pallets function as bottom support and as such needed to withstand high compression loads.
The compact design allows the RRS to be transported and positioned easily (on PKH pallets). The modularity of the system enables it to be used on any type of aircraft, small or large.
