The Tyler Special Operations Platform (TSOP) system makes tactical helicopter missions safer, easier and more efficient. The TSOP system consists of externally mounted cargo platforms on each side of the helicopter for transporting and deploying personnel. The External Attach Frame assembly, also known as a Fast-Rope unit, works in conjunction with the TSOP. After the initial installation of the Fast-Rope system is complete, the framework quickly connects together with "pip" and safety pins. The system has been designed with a safety hook that can be released from inside the helicopter by a manual two-function T-handle cable release mechanism. This equipment expands the counter-terrorism and homeland security capabilities of law enforcement agencies worldwide.
