A fixed wing asset (drone or aircraft) will locate the target – either personnel or supplies – and drop a PRAES package. The PRAES package can consist of the item to be inserted into the field, a harness for personnel recovery, a package for drone delivery, a cable attached to the fixed wing asset, and a load stability system. While the PRAES package falls to the ground, the aircraft will circle the target, creating a long line loiter effect. While the cable continues to extend out the back of the fixed wing asset, the cable (with the load attached) begins to fall down to the ground in a similar fashion to a lasso. Such a technique prevents any G-forces or upward pull being created from the constant flight of the fixed wing asset.
As the PRAES package begins to approach the ground, the load stability system technology will fix on a specific geo designated, RF receiver, or other communication device ensuring precision placement of the PRAES package on the ground.
While waiting for the release of the goods attached to the PRAES package or the personnel to get attached to the harness, the fixed wing assets continue to circle the target. Once the target is acquired and the desired load is released or attached, the fixed wing asset departs the asset, lifting the load off the ground trailing behind the aircraft.
