The TC3 system is a dispersant system, which is designed to be suspended beneath a helicopter. It consists of a 910 litre (210 gallon) dispersant hopper, pump, spray arms, sling assembly and spreader bar and control module. During operation, the unit can be flown at speeds of up to 85 knots, increasing to 120 knots during transit. The TC3's innovative design offers excellent directional stability during flight.

  • The spray width of the system can be altered by the control module depending on the area of coverage required.
  • In the unlikely event of an emergency, the unit can be dropped by the pilot from inside the aircraft by releasing it from the helicopter cargo hook.
