RF Hook
Worlds First FCC, NSA Level 1

Encrypted, Wireless Controlled Remote

Cargo Hook



The system is mounted on the hook which makes it completely autonomous from the aircraft. This system can be used with any aircraft by mounting it on the long line. The system can also be modified to be operated from a switch on the cyclic or any other switch that the operator might prefer. This system does away with the electric connection from the Helicopter to the Hook, and the cover for the electric line. The swivel can be simpler with no need to have an electrical system continuity. This means a cleaner application with less maintenance and down time. The system has received approval from the FCC. This system is covered by US Patent No: 8,532,846 B2.
