In January 2018, Glomex Military Supplies, on basis of winning the August 2017 tender for delivery of 10 units of the Helicopter External Cargo Transport Nets, handed over to the Czech Air Forces eight HCN1616 cargo nets capable carrying load of up to 2 268 kg (5,000 lbs) and two HCN1818 nets for carrying cargo of up to 4,536 kg (10,000 lbs). Transport of cargo on helicopters’ sling thus enhances the operational and training capabilities of helicopters within Czech Air Forces.
At the end of 2017, Aviation Division of Glomex Military Supplies handed over two units of PRM - 40 Ambulift to the 24th Air Force Base in Prague - Kbely. This self-propelled vehicle allows for convenient transport, embarkation and disembarkation of passengers with reduced mobility or injured persons, including attending staff, to the transport airplane. The air-conditioned and insulated passenger compartment is equipped with three seats and safety belts and restraint system to attach disability aids and other equipment and to prevent passengers from falling. The new equipment can be used for transportation of participants to the 12th Winter Paralympics in PyeongChang in March 2018. Ambulifts can also be used for lifting of food containers or other equipment to support the aircraft on-board galley operation.
In the last quarter of 2017, Glomex Military Supplies delivered to the Czech Air Forces Portable K-loader system allowing for loading and unloading to transport aircraft of material deposited on standardized NATO-463L (Airborn Standard Pallet) pallet system, ISO 1C containers and on so called "pallet trains". The subject of the delivery was self-propelled K-loader for handling and transporting palletised cargo weighing up to 25,000 lb, a roller bench for the completion of the “pallet trains”, three forklift trucks with reduced height, including a roller-lane attachment, and four sets of portable weighing scales. The new equipment in a significant way accelerates the loading and unloading of material to/from transport aircraft and will be supporting humanitarian aid missions and Czech Army foreign deployments.
