Simple to use and durable weapon loading solution
Didsbury Engineering continues 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 Engineering now produce a single loading solution for all stores up to 700 kg, 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 in 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 need be designed/re-designed, or modified and not the entire loader. Utilising the Didsbury Weapon Loader (DWL) 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 DWL is an ’emission free’ alternative to powered loaders therefore not subjecting personnel to potentially harmful diesel exhaust fumes whilst working in confined aircraft shelters. The DWL 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 Engineering can provide all aspects of training required to ensure that the customer can safely and expediently use the equipment. The DWL 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.
