MOSCOW, December 12 /TASS/. The Scientific Research Institute of Parachute Construction (NIIPS, which is affiliated with the Technodinamika holdings) will use the Syrian experience to design a new cargo airdrop platform in 2017, the enterprise’s CEO, Dmitry Tretyakov, told journalists.
"We are planning to launch new research and development works to create a cheap cargo platform for the delivery of humanitarian cargoes and perhaps ammunition to areas of military hostilities," Tretyakov said.
Earlier, NIIPS reported that the lifting capacity of such platforms could vary from 500 kg to 1.5 tonnes.
