Aerospace Case Study

Dropping a military tank from an airplane


Intent Design applied its expertise and innovation to perform a complete overhaul of the Cargo Hold System (CHS) and Aerial Delivery System (ADS) within a compressed timeline. Intent Design’s first class systems integration team achieved a rapid scale-up, reduced cycle time and manpower hours, and met the critical deadline for a ground up design concept of the cargo lock system.

Intent Design engineers and project managers worked on-site with the aircraft and Cargo System manufacturers to closely integrate the Cargo Release System with the Cargo System supplier’s overall logistics solution. Research, modeling, development, and testing were completed in time for the release of the design to prototype manufacturing.
