Parachute System Ground Roll Test 2021.12.15
At the Fujikawa Gliderport in Shizuoka Prefecture, Parachute system deployment ground roll test was conducted to confirm the operation from the release of the deceleration chute to the deployment of the main chute in the two-stage parachute system equipped with WIRES#015.
We mounted the full scale dummy body on a truck and ran, and confirmed the parachute deployment operations from drogue chute release to main chute deployment in the two-stage parachute system equipped.
In this test, problems such as non-operation of the drogue chute separation mechanism and interference between the parachute and the tail were also found. In the future, we will evaluate the problems and implement countermeasures.
