GPS Guided Parachute System

For projects in the most difficult locations or situations, Matrix can deploy MMIST Systems, enabling cargo to be delivered even when ground based infrastructure
 such as roads or runways do not exist, or when ground based infrastructure
 has become ineffective due to poor weather, climate change, or lack of
 security.

MMIST is a full solution provider of Precision Aerial Delivery products and
services including the Sherpa family of GPS guided parafoils, the CQ-10A
 SnowGoose cargo unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) along with mission planning
 tools, services and support equipment.


The Sherpa guided parachute system enables safe, accurate and cost effective
 delivery of cargo from a variety of fixed/rotary wing aircraft. Sherpa
 achieves high accuracy without dangerous low level aircraft flight, enabling
 cargo delivery into mountainous terrain, under zero visibility. Sherpa
variants can deliver cargo bundles as small as 100 lbs. to as large as
 10,000 lbs.



All Sherpa variants are fully autonomous and GPS guided; SAASM GPS and
 remote manual control, with the unique ability to reprogram the target point
 in-flight with the push of a button. All variants feature fully guided
 ram-air parafoils which maintain positive control of the load throughout the
 entire flight, with a final soft landing at approximately half the rate of
 descent of round parachutes.



Sherpa variants feature a robust ability to overcome adverse winds, and
 offers significant flexibility under even the most challenging resupply
 scenarios.
