Cobham's restraint systems have been in use by militaries
worldwide in ground vehicle, rotary and fixed wing aircraft
applications for over 40 years. A market leader in restraint
systems and personnel harnesses, Cobham offers restraints that
provide the highest levels of occupant protection while
continuously innovating to develop next generation restraint system
solutions for pilots and crew members.
Advancing Restraint Technology
Cobham's MA-16 inertia reel is fielded all over the world on
rotary and fixed wing aircraft platforms. Cobham has built on
this MA-16 technology to develop next generation restraint systems
including the Mobile Aircrew Restraint System (MARS) and the
Pretensioning Aircrew Restraint System (PARS). The MARS
system, equipped with a dual-mode locking inertia reel, enhances
capability over legacy systems by preventing highly mobile aircrew
from being ejected during a crash event and providing fall
protection when working near open aircraft doors or hatches.
The PARS, a modular system that enhances the capability of existing
MA-16 inertia reels, removes harness slack and quickly secures
aircrew member's upper torso prior to impact.
Restraints for Any Application
Cobham designs and manufactures customised restraints for rotary
wing, fixed wing and ground vehicle applications. Cobham has the
capability to cost effectively develop restraint systems that
exceed customer expectations and provide unmatched safety.
