Cardboard Honeycomb used in military airdrops

4 years ago by AustinBaker - Technology Inspiration

As many as 11 layers of honeycomb are positioned under the vehicle, but this M1151A1 UAH will compress only four layers during a normal landing. A hard impact at 28.5 feet per second (worst-case scenario) should crush five layers while using the entire nine-inch stroke of the HMMWV’s suspension to absorb the shock.
