The iWAD is a timer that can actuate a mechanical release or fire a pyrotechnic cutter enabling precision High Altitude Low Opening (HALO) or High Altitude High Opening (HAHO) operations.
The iWAD Programmer is used to program the iWAD Timer. It is used to select type of release (mechanical, pyrotechnic, or both), time, and altitude (as required) of each type of release. Each unit weighs 1.2 lbs. and may remain on an aircraft for repeated use.
