An improved slider for use with a parachute, particularly a ram-air type parachute, is provided. The slider includes a generally rectangular piece of material having grommets in the corners through which the suspension lines of the parachute run. At least one retaining structure is attached to or made in the slider material for securing one or more stiffening elements. The stiffening elements are flexible enough to allow for the packing of the parachute, but stiff enough to keep the material of the slider spread open in the fore/aft direction across the short axis of the slider and thereby prevent the slider from folding and flapping once the canopy has opened.


A method for monitoring a primary field dipole moment in a TDEM geological surveying system, including measuring a sign and amplitude of a primary field generated by a transmitter loop and sensed by a receiver in each of a plurality of sensitive axes, and in dependence thereon calculating a vector which represents orientation of the primary field at the receiver location in a receiver frame of reference; and determining, in dependence on the vector an orientation of the primary field dipole moment in a receiver frame of reference.


A harness container for a parachutist has a bio-contoured support cradle or load distributing vest. The load distributing vest, which is generally U-shaped and includes an upper yoke and two straps integral with the yoke, has a multi-layer construction that includes an outer layer and an inner layer mounted on a bio-contoured pad. The outer layer and the inner layer are of corresponding shape and are sewn to one another along a reinforced edging with the pad therebetween. The upper yoke is attached to the front side of the harness container and the ends of the vest straps are attached to the main lift webs so that the vest elevates the harness container and distributes the load thereof across the jumpers shoulders, back and chest for increased comfort.

An airdrop platform comprises a load-carrying base (10) having an upper surface and a lower surface. The upper surface includes attachment points (14) for one or more parachutes. The load-carrying base (10) is formed from a material, such as a glass fibre reinforced plastics material in the form of a grating, which is such as to flex to absorb energy on changes of the energy of the platform under the forces applied to the base (10) on parachute opening and on landing.

An aerial delivery platform comprises first and second modules (10a, 10b) each having a respective load-bearing surface (14). The modules (10a, 10b) are hinged together for relative flexing movement about an axis (24) between the modules (10a, 10b). A superstructure of interconnected struts (25, 26, 27, 28, 29) is connected to, and is upstanding from, the modules (10a, 10b) to hold the modules (10a, 10b) with the load bearing surfaces (14) coplanar when loaded and during descent but being elastically deformable to permit limited relative flexing movement between the modules (10a, 10b) under the loads applied by parachute opening and on landing to assist in the absorption the energy transferred to the platform.

A basketball training system includes a basketball training machine, a wearable physiological monitor, a wearable player motion monitor, and a ball motion monitor. Data from the training machine and the monitors is used to provide feedback to the player on shooting performance, shooting form and technique, and intensity level of the workout. The system can provide programmed workouts that include shooting drills and exercise segments to combine shooting practice with conditioning.

A basketball training system includes a ball delivery system in which a basketball is delivered to a ball ready holder located in front of a ball launch mechanism. A launch arm is grabbed and pulled backward against a spring force, and then is released to pivot forward and strike the basketball from the ball ready holder.
