AMN Video: Capewell Aerial Systems started with horseshoe nails in 1881 & now serves the US Navy, Army and Coast Guard(YouTube)
Capewell Aerial Systems has been around since 1881, and the company started with horseshoe nails.
Capewell is a respected provider of engineered products for aerial delivery, life support and tactical gear for military, law enforcement and humanitarian agencies worldwide.
Some of the company’s basic product lines include aerial delivery, K-9 and ballistics; and some of their clients include commercial companies, as well as the U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Army and U.S. Navy.
Capwell’s gear includes inflatable vests for day-to-day pilots and crews. One of the company’s vests contains an innovative floatation collar, and that is the Survivor Lite.
Rather than layering and putting a horse collar on, the floatation device is built into the vest. Once inflated, it provides 44 pounds of buoyancy.
Capewell Aerial Systems was recently featured at the ADS Warrior East Expo in Virginia Beach.
