ABBS has been awarded a £100,000 R&D grant by Innovate UK to carry out a Proof-of-Concept programme to demonstrate the feasibility of a Helicopter Crash Prevention System. It is proposed to use the novel patented Linear Rocket Motor (LRM) technology to very rapidly generate the high thrust and impulse levels required to slow a crashing helicopter within a few meters from the ground.

There are over 500 helicopter accidents worldwide each year, with similar numbers of fatalities and serious injuries. It is anticipated that if all the helicopter fleet were fitted with the proposed system these number would be drastically reduced, with huge savings in costs and lives each year.
