Inflation Systems 

General Dynamics Ordnance & Tactical Systems developed some of the original air bag technologies that are currently used in automobiles including non-toxic solid propellants, gas generators and inflators. This technology has been successfully applied to other platforms including helicopter crew compartments, torpedo recovery systems, sonars and impact attenuation systems.

We have designed inflation systems that utilize solid propellant or hybrid gas generators that utilize solid propellant and stored gas such as CO2.
