The unique aspect of the TAAS escape cabin over the F-111 and other cabin ejection systems is the attachment technique and gliding capability.


in other words, you haven't invented the (decades old) "ejectable crew cabin" but just added new junctions (explosive bolts?) and wings to allow the ejected cabin to glide and land like and airplane...

it's correct?

or, if it's not, can you explain me/us which exact part of an ejectable cabin you've changed, then patented?

Quote:
The proposed project to demonstrate the escape cabin involves modifying an old Learjet.


it seems too expensive to destroy a full scale airplane to test the ejectable cabin rather than just test it on scale models

Quote:
...operate the modified vehicle as a sub-orbital space flight...


the ejectable cabin could help if the spaceplane goes to a bad trajectory, but I doubt it could save the crew if the (pretty close to the cabin and ery much bigger than in a common airplane) propellents tanks will explode (since the explosion is several times faster than the fastest possible cabin ejection)

however, where is the advantages of wings over the parachutes (I suggest for a Shuttle's ejectable crew cabin) or the paraglider proposed (but never used) in '60s for the Gemini (to land them on common runways rather than on sea)

the crew cabin wings are very much bigger and heavier than a simple parachute

since it's no longer a "Latest News" (but it's still a "Technology") topic, why did not merge both threads here?

I think the following statement confirms that he is:

Our US patent (# 6,776,373) was issued August 17, 2004 and the provision patent precedes that by another year.

Welcome Robert!
