The BA-22 emergency assembly is a high-speed emergency parachute system. This back style parachute is configured for use in aircrafts, such as: C-141, C-130, KC-135, B-52, C-5, F-5, T-37, T-38, A-37 and F-100. The BA-22 emergency assembly is currently used by Air Forces worldwide.
At altitudes below 14,000 feet, the crewman will pull the manual ripcord when clear of the aircraft.
For landing, the crewman can steer the parachute so that they are facing into the wind, to reduce the potential for injury. The system is highly adjustable to accommodate a wide range of personnel weights and sizes.
The C-9 canopy has a rear 4-line release system, which allows the airman to steer the parachute by means of control lines attached to the risers. This permits directional control for safe landing.
