Corps is moving forward with a new parachute

The Corps’ multimission parachute system, or MMPS, has been in service for over a decade.

But now the Corps says it’s inadequate to meet the requirements of today’s force and brings some safety concerns.

To modernize the Corps’ parachute insertion capability, the Marines have spent the past several years researching potential replacements for the MMPS, eventually deciding to move forward with the enhanced multimission parachute system.

According to Barbara Hamby, a spokeswoman for Marine Corps Systems Command, the Corps awarded a contract in January 2018 to Airborne Systems North America for the new parachute, and the Corps plans to procure more than 1,000 parachutes, with the first fielding expected by the end of 2021.
