          Lesson Purpose

There are no TLO’s or ELO’s

This class is designed to familiarize you
with the history, operational limitations
and tactical advantages of the CPS
Military Solo System
                     History
   Corrects deficiencies of MC4 and MC5
   Reduced opening shock at all altitudes
   Better canopy performance during landing
   Greater stand-off capability
   Capable of multiple configurations
   Commonality of equipment for all users
   Added mission capability and safety to the units
   Multiple built-in safety features
                Configurations
   Single pin main and single pin reserve
    containers
   360sq.ft., 9 cell, zero porosity top skin and F111
    bottom skin, main canopy
   375sq.ft., 9 cell, F-111 reserve canopy
   Double Bag Static Line capability (DBSL)
   Hand Deployed Pilot Chute (HDPC)
   Over The Shoulder Main Ripcord (OSMR)
        Operating Limitations
 MAXIMUM RECOMMENDED OPENING ALTITUDES
   DB Static Line   25,000 ft. MSL
   Freefall         25,000 ft. MSL
 MINIMUM RECOMMENDED OPENING ALTITUDES
   DB Static Line   3,000 ft. AGL
   Freefall         3,000 ft. AGL
 MINIMUM RECOMMENDED EXIT ALTITUDES
   DB Static Line   3,000 ft. AGL
   Freefall         3,000 ft. AGL
         Operating Limitations

   Maximum opening altitude is 25,000 ft. MSL
   Maximum landing altitude is 13,000 ft. MSL
    (highest tested so far)
   Maximum exit weight is 425 pounds
   Minimum exit weight is 220 pounds

(The canopy has been tested up to 35k ft. msl.)
               Safety Features
 RSL
   Automatically pulls reserve pin upon cutting away from
    a deployed main canopy
 Collins Lanyard
   Ensures the left riser is released if the cutaway pillow is
    not pulled completely or the right riser separates for
    any reason
 Sky Hook
   Uses the main canopy as a drogue to rapidly pull the
    reserve from the container after performing a cutaway
           Tactical Advantages
   Enhanced operating limitations
   Increased stand-off capability from DZ
   Deployable from diverse platforms
   Compatible with other operations
   Precision lower impact landings
   Low radar signature and quiet slider
             Other Advantages
   Expanded operational capability
   Enhanced Safety Features
