The GRS is a new design in which the canopy is not gradually drawn from a box by means of a long conventional sleeve, distorted by air currents and possibly fouling on the aircraft structure or its debris, during deployment. The GRS canopy is drawn away from the aircraft in a short special compact container to a length of 15-18 metres from the aircraft depending on the size of GRS. At this point the whole hanging system from canopy to aircraft is stretched, a container lock is released and the canopy can be inflated directly, significantly reducing the risk of debris damaging the canopy. The whole design of the GRS is purposefully constructed for the fastest possible opening which enhances the potential of a rescue of the aircraft and crew from the lowest possible height.

Firing the system is done mechanically by hand pulling the activation handle with a force of approximately 9 kg. Launching ignition mechanism is activated and two igniters will be fired by double strikers which will ignite the powder load and ignite the TPH (solid fuel) of the rocket engine.
