Task Aerospace, Inc. offers a management tool specifically designed to efficiently manage Cartridge Actuated and Propellant Actuated Devices (CAD/PAD) used in escape systems, ejection seats, aircrew flight equipment, fire suppressions and stores release systems. The CAD/PAD Requirements and Management Program (RAMP) develops fleet requirement forecasts and sustainment budgets with accuracy and ease. RAMP creates time-change maintenance schedules, manages and tracks inventory, and suggests procurement (requisition) actions. RAMP offers increased aircraft readiness by assuring availability of critical CAD/PAD items.

 Qualified Training:

  • Basic CAD/PAD (explosives) Handling
  • CAD/PAD Installation and Removal
  • Basic Ejection Seat Maintenance

TASK personnel are US Air Force Master Instructors for every aspect of Egress and CAD/PAD. In many cases, courses can be taught in native language. With the extensive turnover of personnel, and the lack of certified trainers in-house, TASK offers certified training that is recognized by US and Foreign Governments and meets the requirements of the systems.

We have developed a training program teaches the removal of the ejection seat from the aircraft, the removal of CAD/PAD items from the ejection seat, the installation of the CAD/PAD items onto the ejection seat, and the installation and check-out of the ejection seat into the aircraft. Because of the safety issues associated with handling pyrotechnic systems, each of your maintainers should be familiar with these tasks. This course will make the maintainer confident, and safe.

A custom training program can be built for your requirements, for your ejection seat, and for your aircraft. Contact TASK to help you develop Egress training programs.

CAD/PAD Disposal is provided by Task Aerospace, Inc. for those over-aged or expired CAD/PAD items. Task will facilitate your CAD/PAD Disposal by first making an assessment of your items, packaging and documentation. Following an assessment, Task personnel will provide a list of required (certified) packaging and either procure the packaging for you, or support your procurement process. Once packaging is available, the CAD/PAD Disposal process begins. Task personnel will package all items in approved packaging, develop all required documentation, and arrange pick-up and shipping of the items to a US Government Certified CAD/PAD Disposal facility.

Task personnel facilitate the entire process of CAD/PAD Disposal, from coming to your facility and making an assessment of the requirement to delivering it to the CAD/PAD Disposal facility. CAD/PAD Disposal is a unique service provided by Task Aerospace, Inc. Generally, pricing is based on the Net Weight of the item and its packaging, not just the Net Explosive Weight (NEW) within the item. There is a minimum charge for CAD/PAD Disposal, plus a per-pound value.
