Safety and Survival

Cobham Safety Restraints Products added to GSA Contract

You can now purchase Mobile Aircrew Restraint Systems (MARS) online through the GSA’s Advantage!® procurement system.

Cobham through its distribution partner- Transaero Inc, has received a US General Services Administration (GSA) contract that allows the armed forces and other federal agencies to purchase Mobile Aircrew Restraint Systems (MARS) online through the GSA's Advantage!® procurement system.


Cobham's  Mobile Aircrew Restraint System (MARS) was developed to prevent highly mobile aircrew from being ejected during a crash event, hard landing or rough weather when working near open aircraft doors. The MARS which is currently flown in all USAF HH-60G Pavehawks easily adapts to existing or emerging aircrew harnesses or belts and increases aircrew comfort and safety by eliminating webbing slack and allowing aircrew to concentrate on their mission without constant strap length management.  It also minimizes tripping hazards during ground troop insertion/extraction missions, and reduces aircrew-webbing entanglement.


Now, with the inclusion in the GSA Schedule, MARS units can be conveniently purchased by any DoD agency to prevent highly mobile aircrew from being ejected during a crash event and to provide fall protection when working near open aircraft doors or hatches.


The GSA product numbers are: 1855-012-04 - MARS with 63" webbing and 1855-012-05 - MARS with 83" webbing, and can be purchased using the contract No: GS-07F-6094R (ends in Sept 15, 2020). The warranty is 1 year on the all systems  and can be transportable to location via air, sea or land. The MAS Schedule/SIN: 084/426 4F.
