Netting for the aviation industry
Since the Wright brothers took off in 1903 the feild of aviation has expanded beyond what Wilbur or Orveille could have dreamed. Today planes are used for everything from a means of personal transport to delivery of enormous cargo. Take a look into any plane on the runway and you’ll likely see netting applied.
US Netting has developed custom aviation netting for individual pilots and military contractors alike. We specialize in cargo securement and delivery systems including highly customized cargo net assemblies with custom fabricated hardware and attachment mechanisms as well as nets to contain payloads , sometimes as big as trucks, while attaching them to cargo aerial delivery systems.
When deliberately dropping cargo from the sky, netting must be able to withstand wind currents and protect the freight from damage on landing. At the same time, it must have the ability to be released quickly and efficiently; and in the case of disaster relief, without special tools or equipment on the ground.

The U.S. military has been using drone netting solutions to safely land drones doing recon work. Military drones are extremely expensive and sensitive pieces of technical equipment that can require custom cargo netting for safe landings. In fact, there are companies testing methods for drone delivery where custom landing platforms and containment netting to catch the product as it falls out of the sky.
Amazon, of course, is the most often discussed company interested in the idea of using drones to deliver their items; but, there are other enterprises doing feasibility studies to incorporate this concept into their corporate plans.

Netting has been the method of choice for drone retrieval since the U.S. started using them in the Iraq-Afghanistan War.
Recreation center entrepreneurs are installing custom netting for indoor drone flying contests as well as, hobbyists training facilities. Drone netting must be custom made to meet the size of the drones that are being used or intended.
We have experience at fabricating government drone netting solutions as well as drone containment netting for landing. We are also capable of designing seizure netting for drones that are interfering with trade or private buildings, as well as working with companies on the cutting edge of development for use as commercial delivery systems.
