Arresting Systems - P-IV PortArrest®

PortArrest® P-IV ESCO mobile system

The PortArrest® P-IV ESCO system, also known as the MAAS (Mobile Aircraft Arresting System), is a self-contained, mobile system designed and manufactured by Safran Aerosystems to support rapid deployment and facilitate aircraft recovery on permanent or temporary runways. It was developed in response to the US Air Force MAAS program for which over 200 systems have been sold. It incorporates a BAK-12 energy absorber and can be configured as a cable, net or combined system. Safran Aerosystems also provides specific training courses to help air forces develop their operational capability.

 

 

Mobile Runway Edge Sheaves (MRES)

MRES runway edge sheaves

A brand-new solution designed by Safran Aerosystems to reduce obstacles on the runway strip and improve flight safety, MRESs (Mobile Runway Edge Sheaves) supplement the mobility offered by the PortArrest®. They enable the PortArrest® to be set back by 50 to 325 feet from the runway edge, while still allowing aircraft to taxi.

Arresting portable systems

Portable arresting solutions

When total mobility is not required, portable arresting solutions can be provided by Safran Aerosystems. These can be installed quickly, with a minimum of civil engineering work. They provide the same level of performance as a permanent system, while remaining easily movable.
