Unfortunately, most police departments and SWAT teams still employ familiar methods. Tactical team members are required to balance on the skid of the helicopter, with only grips or rails to hold onto. Not only does this leave them exposed to the elements, but fully exposed to snipers on the ground. Ongoing stress is now mixed with an omnipresent sense of danger.
Tyler Special Operations Platform – The Perfect Helicopter Mount
To remedy this and make the job of law enforcement officers a more secure one, Tyler Technologies has designed a helicopter bench, the “Tyler Special Operations Platform” known by the initials TSOP. This framework is manufactured by Tyler Technologies for use during helicopter flights and specifically for those flights made by law enforcement agencies.
In addition, each Tyler Special Operations Platform has been developed to go beyond current Federal Aviation Administration requirements. This is to be expected, as Tyler Technologies is Federal Aviation Administration Parts Manufacturing Authority certified. The company been recognized for its innovative helicopter mounts by the international film industry for well over forty years.
The Tyler Special Operations Platform allows law enforcement officers and helicopter pilots to perform intricate operations more efficiently. With our helicopter mount, there is no need for constant modifications to fit a variety of helicopters, planes or aircraft. Each Tyler Special Operations Platform is easily and smoothly installed to stay ahead of possible situations. In fact, after its initial installation, each TSOP is set up without the use of any tools.
When employing the TSOP on a mission, officers have Rope Rappel and Fast Rope capabilities which are nearly impossible with standard hand-held grips. Helicopters fitted with Tyler Special Operations Platforms have a myriad of other tactical advantages. These include such benefits as a fold-able foot-rest, anchor points that align safety belts, and the ability to lock down vertically to preserve space when not in current use.
Each of our helicopter mounts is also highly aerodynamic due to its lightweight design and mounts quickly to cross-tubes with connect clamps. However, it is the reliability and strength of the Tyler Special Operations Platform that gives law enforcement a strategic advantage in high stress scenarios. These include instances when law enforcement helicopters are necessary for emergencies, high-rise building evacuations and overhead SWAT deployment.
Police forces and law enforcement agencies know that they're in good hands with helicopter benches manufactured by Tyler Technologies. As with all of their Tyler Technologies designs, each product has been developed to go far and beyond what is presently on the market. Hence, why the Tyler Special Operations Platform is user friendly, durable and can literally save lives.
