Devices and methods employed to open parachutes, including manual and automatic methods are discussed and illustrated. Specific attention is devoted to a device which is pressure-controlled, with automatic timing for canopy deployment. The application and role of the parachute in areas other than aviation are discussed briefly. (Author)
