Parachute Installation Fixture

The Parachute Installation Fixture was designed to integrate with other processing GSE and provide a safe, efficient, motion controlled means of loading the prepared descent parachute packs into the parachute bay in the launch vehicle. It utilizes linear motion systems to drive and control parachute pack movement and integrates a modified off-the-shelf scissor lift platform for vertical positioning.
