Parachute systems for special operations
[Parachute systems for special operations]


SPELCO is a co-operative venture of ESG Elektroniksystem- und Logistik-GmbH and B/E Aerospace Systems GmbH. The consortium was founded in 2002 to benefit from the experience and competence of both companies in order to assure customer specific end-to-end services for complex parachute systems.
Whereas the ESG, a leading system and software house, contributes its experience and expertise in the field of logistics and operational requirements, B/E Aerospace Systems provides the know-how in developing, manufacturing and support of high altitude oxygen systems. Therefore, SPELCO stands for a complete life cycle concept, that provides a maximum of integrated logistic support (ILS) and economical efficiency.


Conventional millitary parachute equipment is mainly used for airdrop operations and is not designed to meet the challenging requirements of today's and tomorow's special operational weapon systems. Just simply adding special mission related equipment to a parachute is insufficient unless a sophisticated parachute management is implemented as well.
SPELCO's approach thus, focuses on the support along the whole life cycle of parachute systems. This ranges from mission planing, integration of sub-systems and components to complete solutions, testing and training.


  • Single-source procurement and support complete life cycle services
  • Integration of additional sub-systems and components
  • Cost-savings by improved process management
