BRS Aerospace a part of Ballistic Recovery Services Inc. (BRS) received a contract modification from the U.S. Army to increase its production of cargo parachutes. The $8 M contract will require almost a fifty percent increase in production. The company will have to significantly expand its workforce at its two plants.

Due to conditions in Afghanistan the U.S. military often carries out air drops of supplies and equipment. This means that the stock of parachutes has been used up over the last nine years. This contract will probably replenish stocks while allowing continued resupply missions
