The Military CYPRES 2 2500/29A is recommended for “heavy” (two jumpers with full combat equipment) tandem and MTTB (bundle) operations. The activation altitude of 2,500 ft addresses large size parachute deployment and heavy loads. The activation speed of 29 m/s is adjusted to the slower fall rate under a large drogue after cutaway of the bundle load. For the bundle delivery parachute, we recommend a vertical separation of 1000 ft. minimum. A combination with the 1500/35A or 1000/35A model would be our recommendation. Contact the manufacturer of your parachute/container system for additional assistance.
Training Mode: While in Training Mode, the Military CYPRES works with the simplicity and ease of operation like the sport CYPRES models. After turn-on and self-test, the unit zeroes out to the local elevation and automatically tracks weather changes, adjusting accordingly throughout the day.
Operational Mode: For tactical applications and remote jumps, using the Military CYPRES in Operational Mode overcomes the limitations of Training Mode and sport CYPRES models. The absolute pressure of any Target DZ or Virtual DZ can be programmed, while on the ground or in flight, even in a pressurized cabin.

*Given that the CYPRES was correctly installed and that the parameters to warrant an activation were met, including but not limited to the loop being properly routed through the cutter. Per our current knowledge as of Nov. 2020.
**The temperature limits are not referring to the outside (ambient) temperatures, but rather temperatures inside the processing unit.
