In an emergency, the pilot often has to throw their rescue when the wing is turning violently with correspondingly high g-forces. The current EN tests do not include deployment tests with high g-forces. NOVA voluntarily and intensively tests its harnesses using the G-Force Trainer – with differently sized parachutes, different pilot sizes, different lengths of connection bridles, in several deployment directions and until our testers black out…
Memory materials – what are they?
The airbag of the ITUS contains Nitinol wire and a polycarbonate plate, which ensure that the airbag fills with air before take off. Both materials can be squashed (e.g. when packing), but they always return to their original shape. As if they could remember… This is why they are called “memory materials”.
The advantage of the Get-up system is ease of use as well as its light weight. Compared to the T-lock system, the ITUS requires only two clicks to close the harness instead of four. In combination with the colour-coded buckles, closing the harness is therefore as simple and straightforward as it can be.
How should you store the ITUS?
Generally harnesses should not be stored in damp, wet or hot conditions. The harness should never be exposed to hazardous substances like solvents, paints, battery acid and their gases, etc.
Why is it possible to detach the hiking rucksack from the ITUS?
Due to the detachable backpack, the ITUS is suitable for both reversible and light harness fans. It is also very useful that the rucksack can be washed separately without risking getting the parachute wet. For all those who like to transport their equipment in a quick packing bag or similar, the ITUS without the rucksack is almost a kilo lighter!
Yes, it is suitable for ground handling. The airbag fills immediately after unpacking – and therefore also protects whilst on the ground. If you like it especially light, you can remove the ITUS rucksack and even remove the SAS-TEC protector.
How does the seat geometry work on the ITUS?
The ITUS permits an upright as well as a slightly reclined seating position. Adjustment is easy and can be performed in the air. In order to avoid mis-adjusting the seat geometry, the ITUS is equipped with built-in strap limiters.
