Abstract : The patent relates to a power-operated adapter particularly suitable for retrofitting existing conventional manually-operated parachute connectors. When activated by a built-in power source it automatically actuates the female and male connector halves to free the pilot from the parachute and of preventing reuse until the expended power source is replaced.
