At Shadow System "Thinking Outside The Box" has proved to be the best solution
to unresolved security breach issues. By employing these solutions to Environmentally Friendly Energy, Rapid Mobility, Patrol Security, Search & Rescue even NASA pilot traning we found products that have low environmental impact, field servicability, are cost effective, budget conscious and also user friendly.
The Vietnam War forced the United States to rethink its
strategies on the battlefield in 1966. The need for rapid
deployment, interdiction, enemy suppression and
intelligence gathering was complicated by weather,
jungles, swamps and poorly maintained roads.
In 1968 “Operation White Star” was the first of
many covert ops designed to give the military a
fighting chance. From that lesson a variety of
“Outside The Box Solutions” were formulated.
Task Force 116 commenced and later that year an
operation named “Game Warden” commenced.
This was the first time that hovercraft were used by
the United States in direct combat zones.
It was so successful that many other similar operations commenced “Riverine”, “Bolo”, “Sea Lord”, “Site 85”, “Linebacker” and later “Linebacker II”. Countless American lives were saved by unconventional tactics and the use of unique equipment. To date they are still the most successful wartime operations since World War II.
Shadow System found a new generation
of ULTV [“Ultra-light Tactical Vehicles”] for the
future mobile infantry. Today technology is
more advanced and new unique products are
being manufactured that can be used for
“Rapid Mobility”. In the 21st Century the foot
soldier is all but obsolete. With the intergration
HUD and UAV technology the risk are lessened;
However the Army fully equipped with
ATV’s, Snowmobiles and Light Hovercraft
will be the dominant combat force of the
These products are user friendly,
with low impact motorcycle technology,
which reduces the cost, logistics and
difficulties of parts spares and are field
serviceable. [Click photos to see videos]
SportVue HUD Helmet technology is now available to the public. We are bringing this affordable solution to patrol security, law enforcement and the military at a fraction of the past costs. Envision this RF based HUD technology working for your troops.
During the Vietnam War the
MD-500 impressed both Air Force,
Army and Marines with its low noise
signature, impressive armament
carrying capabilities, field service and
exceptional handling and speed. "Task
Force 160" the military [MD-500]
versions AH-6J “Little Bird”
dubbed by pilots as the “Killer Egg”.
Today the AH-6J still ranks #5 of
the top ten military helicopters.
When the U.S. military need a solution to the vulnerability and failure of helicopter tail rotors the MHX competition was authorized. Of the three U.S. helicopter manufacturers McDonnell Douglas surpassed both Bell Aerospace and Sikorsky Helicopter with it’s NOTAR [No Tail Rotor] system.
It still is the fastest light helicopter in the business produced by a U.S. manufacturer,
Both the "MD-500", "MD-600" NOTAR iand "MD-900" Explorer NOTAR s are "the least expensive and only rotor-less helicopter in the world”.
With McDonnell Douglas NOTAR affordability why isn’t in full combat service?
"Thinking Outside The Box" the aerospace industry has designed some of the most advanced fighter jets of the 20th Century. North American produced the F-100 Super Saber the "Worlds First Supersonic Jet".

The Republic Aviation F-105 “Thunderchief”,
supersonic fighter-bomber was Mach 2 capable
F-105 [at left] bore the brunt of strike bombing
over North Vietnam during the early years of the
Vietnam War. During the war, the two-seat F-105F
and F-105G the first “Wild Weasel” variants became
the first dedicated Suppression of Enemy Air Defenses
The McDonnell Douglas F-101 “Voodoo” was
a supersonic military fighter. While the “Voodoo”
was a moderate success, it may have been more
important as an evolutionary step towards the F-4
“Phantom II”, one of the most successful Western
fighter designs of the1960s. The "Phantom II"
would retain the twin engines, twin crew for
interception duties, and a tail mounted well above
and behind the jet exhaust.
The McDonnell Douglas A-4 "Skyhawk [above left] and F-4 "Phantom II" [above right] revolutionized the aerospace industry and placed the U.S. as #1 in Air Superiority.
SAAB, Sweden bought a little known
Pratt & Whitney engine from Canada
code named “Iroquois” which proved to
be outstanding. The 2 seat SK-37 [left] &
single seat JS-37 “Viggen” [Thunderbolt]
“Worlds First Canard Wing Fighter” was
built. Ithas exceptional short field take-off and
landing. Sadly Canada's CF105 Avro Arrow
was never produced. [at right]
Because of the Vietnam War the F-4 was not being sold to our allies. The U.K. and France formed SEPTCAT and built the "Jaguar" [see left & below] with almost identical handling characteristics of the F-4 Phantom.
Dassault Aircraft, France produced their
advanced fighters F1 & 2000 Mirages; later
adding canard wings. Lockheed, South America produced a unique twin turboprop IA-58 Pucara [Fortress] [left & below] which proved formidable, built for speed, maneuverability,
leathality and crew survivability in mind.
Pucara shared many similarities in both its combat role and outward design to the Rockwell OV-10 Bronco.

"Next Generation" [ at right] a military version [Trainer/ Light Fighter] of the VIPER JET LXR is now in developemental design and testing.EADS Aerospace supplies 1/3rd of the worlds helicopters EMS, Police, Fire Service and Military. Recent conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq and Africa have shown that helicopters are excellent force multipliers and give ground troops the critical tactical support.
