Trapped sufferer must not lose body heat for more than three hours. If rescue units cannot immediately reach them, they can deploy the Airdrop Pod. As the Pod leaves the carrier, air is funneled through the middle of the device. The flow of air actuates a fan and a heat switch built in into the device, and simultaneously opens a parachute equipped at the top. When the Pod reaches the ground, the meal will have heated. If meals failed to reach expected temperatures by the time the Pod lands, heating can also be activated manually. Kindling is also provided at the bottom of the Pod, which hikers can use when rescue is deferred.
