Virtually all AADs designed for skydiving have one parameter combination to define their activation. A certain height and a certain vertical speed make them activate. That has served the needs since the beginning of skydiving. Until Wing Suits appeared. They allow such slow vertical speed that the method of the last 90 years cannot deal with these conditions any more. A new solution was necessary.
The use of Wing Suits requires not one, but two parameter combinations during the same jump. One is needed for the duration of the Wing Suit Flight and another one is needed for the duration of the Canopy Flight.
The WSC starts off by using the Wing Suit parameters, which covers specific Wing Suit flight risks. Once it detects the criteria of your canopy, it changes the Wing Suit parameters to the canopy parameters and informs you about the change.
|The WSC (Wing Suit CYPRES)
Aside from Wingsuiting, the WSC can also be used for all other disciplines too. Also, the handling is identical to all other civilian CYPRES models, except placing the Audio inside your helmet and listening to the melodic sound. Nevertheless, we ask everybody using this device to spend time to inform themselves about the physical circumstances of Wingsuit Flying and the technique behind the WSC.
A different kind of CYPRES designed to accommodate two parameters instead of just one.
