Latest Developments: Cloudburst Fire Bucket with Monsoon Valve

The IMS production team based in New Zealand have been working on the actuation speed of the monsoon valve on the Cloudburst Fire Bucket with some exciting results for the future of one of our core products please scroll down for demo video


Monsoon Valve with Full Time Multi Drop

While using pneumatics for compatibility with water, we’ve developed systems to enhance our already robust and effective valve to make it work instantaneously with pilot or crew inputs from the helicopter.

With the Monsoon Valve with Full Time Multi Drop, every part of the load is placed exactly where it’s intended, regardless of it being a split load or full drop, with or without a long line, and irrespective of the long line length.

The following video demonstrates the responsiveness of the all-new Monsoon Valve with Full Time Multi Drop.


Committed to Innovation & Technical Creativity

The IMS production team has some of the most innovative and creative minds across engineering and aviation backgrounds. Drawing on this wealth of experience throughout a number of complementary industries means we’re capable of formulating systems and techniques not available with any other helicopter equipment available on the market worldwide.
