Our innovative SkyLIFE systems have dramatically improved the way disaster relief and other supplies are delivered to people in need suffering from horrific weather events, war and other catastrophes.  These systems, which include SkyBox*, the Pop-Top Box and SkyLIFE Parachutes, have been designed and engineered by our SkyLIFE team for specific and often unique aid distribution situations.  In such conditions, our systems have made traditional disaster relief distribution systems obsolete.

Sky Life

SKYBOX

Custom-made cargo boxes that hold large or fragile humanitarian aid items that are safely delivered by a SkyLIFE parachute. Unlike our Pop-Top Box, SkyBOX does not open in mid-flight, rather it floats harmlessly to the ground under special parachutes. These boxes weigh less than 55 pounds (24.9 kg); however, custom delivery boxes can be designed by our SkyDESIGN Team (engineering department). When adjusting the box size, the parachute configuration, the amount and type of absorption material, the most fragile payloads can be delivers safely.
