Video Title:
The Joint Precision Airdrop System (JPADS)
Description:
The Joint Precision Air Drop System, known as JPADS, uses GPS and three-dimensional terrain mapping to steer a parafoil in combat situations where normal parachute airdrops are not accurate enough or could fall into enemy hands. It can be dropped from a high altitude or through cloud cover with minimal loss of accuracy.
