PATTEN'S CORE PRODUCTS ARE UTILIZED ON THE WORLD'S MOST SOPHISTICATED AIRCRAFT AND WARSHIPS
PATTEN LIFE RAFTS HAVE BEEN USED ON EVERY NASA MISSION SINCE THE FIRST APOLLO MISSION
Astronaut Virgil I. (Gus) Grissom, pilot of the Mercury-Redstone 4 space flight, sits in our LR-1 life raft during water egress training.
All of our life rafts have several Configurations of Reduced Volume Containers, packed to accommodate different aircraft stowage requirements.
Patten was also the initial project engineer for the development of the inflatable decoy deception force that confused the Germans, before and during the D-Day invasion.
