The SNAKE cockpit is a small option for a navigation board in case you need not to have the complexity and flexibility the x-shut spider system offers.
The SNAKE cockpit uses the connector technology from the x-shut spider for attaching the board to the operator. The SNAKE board comes with integrated basic compass, customized GPS rail system and with the setup for a digital Altimeter like ARES. On top you will find a GoPro camera attachment point.
Using the SNAKE cockpit for tactical HAHO/HALO missions as a training tool opens up a maximum on flexibility.
The most important advantage is again the same as the x-shut spider offers. You can gear up completely without interfering with your instruments. After you geared up you simple lock in the SNAKE cockpit.
