Abstract:

The invention concerns a device for the ejection of parachute models, primarily from a captive balloon, kite, parachute tower, and the like. This device incorporates a suspended container having in its upper portion safety pins connected to a pull cord which is secured at its other end to the suspension unit. A distinguishing feature of this device is that in order to make possible mass parachute drops its container is equipped with a number of specially spaced cells, open from below, and is secured to the suspension unit by a static line so that there is slack in the pull cord, while the static line passes through a remote-controlled cutter located on the suspension unit.
