Specialists of the Ministry of Defense of Russia and industry studied the characteristics of promising samples of parachute systems that allow landing from a height of 10 thousand meters at a free fall speed of up to 350 km / h, advanced navigation equipment, new generation communication systems that allow operation in a wide temperature range, as well as oxygen , medical and special equipment.
Particular attention was paid to the development of the system of training centers and the introduction of transportable hypobaric pressure chamber modules for the training of military personnel.
