Date Submitted: June 30, 2022
Type Draft Resolution: Add Item
Submitter: Geremy Harper
Provide National Guard Reserve Equipment Account funding for the acquisition of TB37000A Tow Bridle Load Out kit to support safe, quick aircraft loading and deployments.
Helibasket Tow Bridle Load Out Kits are designed as the required interface between the cargo aircraft winching system and the helicopter to aid in loading aircraft onto cargo aircraft. The TB37000A Tow Bridle system flexes to help keep tow lines taught with equal tension when loading on the aircraft. This permits more flexibility to maximize loading of the cargo deck.
The TB37000A is designed with high safety considerations, using lightweight carbon fiber and plasma rope technology, to maximize strength and utility capabilities. The kit (NSN: 3940-01-672-4165) is approved for all Army helicopters and is designated by the Air Force as their primary load out kit.
