Parachutist Navigation Board (Standard Version)

Wilcox has developed the Parachutist Navigation Board (Standard Version) to provide High Altitude High Opening  (HAHO) parachutist the ability to navigate via a backlit Ball Compass and/or handheld GPS unit. It features an adjustable, multi-angled articulating back plate and hinge system that allows the parachutists to deploy the Navigation Board once safely under parachute canopy.

Parachutist Navigation Board (Standard Version)

Can be worn by the parachutist via a Rhodesian Vest or attached to the waist band of the parachute harness. Once safely under the parachute canopy, the Parachutist Navigation Board is easily deployed by unscrewing the articulatgiong hinge locking pin and rotating the navigation board to the desired angle. For covert night time operations, the red LED integrated into the Ball Compass can be illuminated.

HAHO parachute operations require the use of navigational tools to assist the parachutist with navigating from the predetermined “opening point” to the “point of impact.” Typically, these navigational tools consist of a fixed mounting platform equipped with a compass only. These fixed non-articulation platforms protruded from the parachutist and could cause injury during rough opening and landings
