Simple to use and durable weapon loading solution
Didsbury continue to do what they do best and now produce a Weapon Loading solution for the Eurofighter Typhoon. Breaking with the tradition for a host of different loaders for different weapon and role equipment types, Didsbury now produce a single loading solution for all stores up to 700Kg, utilising a suite of relatively low cost adapters for individual pieces of equipment.
The Didsbury solution is simple to use, durable, low maintenance and offers a low-cost option, not only in initial purchase price but also in future proofing and it’s through life cost. For example, when new Role Equipment or Weapons are proposed to enter Service only a specific adaptor needs to be designed/re-designed or modified and not the entire loader. Utilising the Didsbury Typhoon Weapon Loader (DTWL) solution means that high cost powered loaders need not be used as habitually, thus saving on expensive running and maintenance costs and utilising them only when necessary. The DTWL also offers an ’emission free’ alternative to powered loaders therefore not subjecting personnel to potentially harmful diesel exhaust fumes whilst working in confined aircraft shelters. The DTWL has a much smaller overall footprint in already congested aircraft shelters than its powered counterparts, also making it easier and cheaper to deploy by air or sea.
Didsbury can provide all aspects of training required to ensure that the customer can safely and expediently use the equipment. It is compatible with current in service transportation trollies and as technology progresses in the weapon industry it will no longer be necessary to replace entire aircraft loading solutions, but merely to produce a new adapter, therefore saving money and development time
