Individual airdrop platforms are coupled to form assemblies consisting of two, three or four platforms. These assemblies are extracted from the aircraft and recovered as a unit, thereby eliminating dispersion of the airdropped materials on the drop zone. The platforms are modified by adding reinforcing truss structures along each side and incorporating hydraulic devices to control the attitude of the individual platforms relative to each other during the recovery process. Long suspension lines are employed to regulate the attitude of the elongated assemblies at touchdown. The airdropped materials are attached to the platforms in a normal manner and standard procedures are employed in performing the airdrop.Individual airdrop platforms are coupled to form assemblies consisting of two, three or four platforms.
