Wamore's Wireless Gate Release System is now operational with the United States Air Force! WGRS is supporting US forces with aerial resupply off C-130 aircraft on the battlefield. Reports from the ground are that WGRS's very first mission resulted in direct landing on the desired point of impact (PI).
Wamore was featured again by Dassault Systemes Solidworks for using the entire suite of Solidworks products as our standard design tools. Seeing how Wamore is in Aerial Delivery where Hitting the Target is usually the object, Solidworks nicely tied our aerial delivery objectives to our design objectives with the title to the presentation! Nicely done Solidworks.
Wamore was featured by Dassault Systemes Solidworks for our expertise using Solidworks Composer. See our case study:
JPADS 2K is featured on the USMC website! Wamore has produced every Autonomous Guidance Unit (AGU) for JPADS 2K fielded to date. Glad to hear another customer is satisfied with JPADS 2K system performance.
Wamore moved into a much larger faciilty to accomodate immediate growth needs.
Wamore's TALON Parachute Release, the system selected by the US Army's Advanced Cargo Parachute Release System (ACPRS) Program of Record, successfully complete Operational Testing (OT) at Fort Bragg. Wamore's Talon PR breezed through OT with no System Malfunctions, on schedule, and on budget.
Wamore's Wireless Gate Release System was used operationally for the first time today in the Active Operational Region. A DHC-4 Caribou performed 4 sorties delivering sticks of up to 8 LCLA CDS bundles to troops in the combat zone. WGRS performed flawlessly, permitting the loadmaster to remain safely forward of the bundles while still allowing precise control of deployment for accurate delivery.
After several months of head to head competition with a major player in the Aerial Delivery arena, Wamore is pleased to announce that we have been chosen by the U.S. Government to continue development of the Advanced Cargo Parachute Release System (ACPRS). Wamore’s ACPRS offers the user a unique and innovative method for ensuring that parachutes are released from cargo only after safe delivery to the ground and under varying conditions. Although the ACPRS offers many advanced features it is extremely simple to understand, rig, and operate, offering the user operational flexibility not found in either the Army’s current Parachute Release or in other products available in the marketplace.
ACPRS is the replacement for the U.S. Army’s M-1 & M-2 Parachute Release which has been in service for more than 40 years.
Wamore, Inc will be presenting our entire Airdrop Product Line at PATCAD 2009 in Yuma, AZ. PATCAD 2009 runs from October 19th through October 23rd at the US Army Yuma Proving Grounds. Wamore's full famiily of AGUs will be on display and will be live airdropped during the demonstration. Wamore's Air Guidance Units (AGUs) include:
JPADS 2K Firefly
JPADS 10K Dragonfly
Wamore's lastest development in Airdrop Technology, the Wireless Gate Release System (WGRS) will also be available for ground demonstration as well as live airdrop. 15 CDS bundles will be individually deployed using the WGRS. Fully loading a C-130 and individually releasing CDS bundles is not possible without the WGRS.
Wamore designed and manufacutred the Air Guidance Unit (AGU) for the Megafly System.
