When You Gotta Ditch, Grab This


The Army has developed an official "Go Bag" for aircraft crewmen who need to ditch in Indian Country.

The so-called Survival Kit, Ready Access, Modular (ugh...) has all the things you need for an E&E, with a little extra love thrown in.

The SKRAM Go Bag is sized to contain both the Aviation Life Support Equipment (ALSE) mandatory minimum gear and 100 ounces of water; a second Go Bag provides carriage for additional mission-specific gear. Two M-4 magazine pouches are also provided for carrying additional ammunition.

- Additional ammunition 
 - Insertable on-the-go hydration system - Rapid Fielding Initiative Modular Sleep System - Mandatory minimum ALSE gear, including food and water
 - Additional environmental gear 
 - In-line filter for on-the-go purification

PEO released a solicitation for this back in '09. The slides below come from a media day back in May and give a whole lot more detail on what the system is supposed to do and carry. The only interested vendor listed on the FBO solicitation is Amcraft Manufacturing Inc.
