Pneumatic Multiple Carriage - MIL-STD-1760

Harris has developed a MIL-STD-1760 multiple carriage pneumatic bomb rack that effectively doubles the number of smart weapons that can be carried by tactical strike aircraft such as the F-18, F-16 and F-35. Our Pneumatic Multiple Carriage system also features a Miniature Munition Store Interface (MMSI).

The pneumatic multiple carriage supports a wide variety of smart weapons

Patented electronics enable the carriage of not only "dumb bombs" but also a wide variety of smart weapons such as JSOW, JDAM, SFW, Paveway, Dual Mode Bomb & SDB. In addition, the PTSC electronics can be configured to operate as a Universal Armament Interface (UAI) Type I or Type II carriage system.
