June 2017 — Aircrew-Mounted Self-Adjusting Tether System

Safe was awarded a Phase I program from the United States Navy to address and remedy several deficiencies with manually-adjusted tethers currently used. Safe is developing designs to improve manual slack monitoring and adjustment, help eliminate hindrance of movement due to nuisance locking; decrease annoyance loads on the occupant; and, correct inconvenient or unrealistic access to the airframe-mounted control points of the systems. Safe’s program utilizes several prototype build phases for hands-on assessment of functionality of the system.
