US Military Agencies Confirm Acceptance of Terra Aerospace Designed Explosive Handling Systems.
Terra Aerospace announced today that the US Army has placed a significant lead order for specialized remote handling systems designed and manufactured by Terra Aerospace Corporation of Ottawa, Canada. This purchase by the US Military culminates co-operative research between US Military authorities and Terra Aerospace commenced in early 1995 which was driven by the Armys' interest in reconfiguring their standard equipment to take advantage of more modern and advanced handling systems for explosive disposal technicians. The patented Terra Aerospace Hook and Line system is the foundation for this re-configuration, and will certainly lead to further major orders as other branches of the US Military adopt this type of handling procedures and equipment for their own forces.
