SAVER Project: Lifting Airbags

Lifting airbags are inflatable "pillows" constructed from combinations of strong rubber, nylon, and/or aramid fiber materials. Responders use these airbags on slopes and soft, marshy, or uneven ground to disperse weight more evenly; they are also used in restricted spaces or in flammable environments.

Please contact NUSTL@hq.dhs.gov regarding access to the following additional documents: Focus Group Report, Market Survey Report, and Assessment Report on Lifting Airbags.
