Human external cargo device "AirAccess Generation Two"

Documents, Manuals


The BCS01 is the first of our BCS series external load systems. BCS is an abbreviation of "Bifilar Cargo System", which is a hint that the system consequently follows our working principle with two cargo ropes. The system consists of a cabin mounted beam assembly which is fixed to the rear seat bench. No fixed provisions are required for installation. Various load attachment devices or cages can be used to transport up to 300kg of external load. The device incorporates a sophisticated mechanical emergency release system with redundancy towards loss of load, but also redundancy towards release of the load in emergencies.

With no fixed provisions, required, the system can be installed in just a few minutes without requiring any tools.

The foremost feature of the patented AirAccess system is the usage of two parallel ropes instead of a single rope. Thus, the dangerous turning tendencies sometimes encountered during fixed rope or hoist operations are effectively eliminated, and no anti-rotation line operator is needed. A passive dampening system additionally reduces pendulum instabilities of the load.

The BCS01 AirAccess Gen2 system supports loads (NHEC and HEC) of up to 300kg and thus allows for evacuation operations for 3 persons simultaneously.

Additional equipment (harnesses, slings, rescue stretcher, connectors etc.) usable with the BCS01 is included in the certified HRS01 package.

The BCS system will soon be available for a great spectrum of helicopter types (AS-350, EC135, BK-117 and more). With more powerful helicopters, the BCS devices are able to lift up to 900kg!
