In 2021 USS-LMT was awarded a contract to build over 7,000 M21 Cartridge Actuated Cutter Devices for the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC).
M21 Cartridge Actuated Cutter Devices are used on Heavy-Load Parachute Systems.
Upon deployment from an aircraft, M21 Cartridge Actuated Cutter Devices sever reefing lines which enable Heavy-Load Parachutes to fully deploy as the payload exits the aircraft.
The M21 devices are made from precision machined components that have extremely tight tolerances (i.e. 0.0005” or less).
The components are manufactured using a state-of-the-art Tsugami Screw-Machine, which enables continuous production and exceptional process stability.
USS-LMT is on schedule to deliver M21 devices from 2021 thru 2022.
