The Textile Aircraft Arresting System (TAAS), is a onetime emergency use (consumable) overrun aircraft arresting system (AAS) designed for use with tail hook equipped fighter aircraft, or non- hook equipped aircraft when coupled with a net barrier engaging system such as the MA-1A Barrier or Barrier Arresting Kit-15 (BAK-15) Barrier Net. TAAS is used to support emergency arrestments of tail hook equipped fighter aircraft as well as trainer T-38 aircraft. TAAS is a secondary aircraft braking system available in case of failure of a successful engagement by the primary aircraft arresting system (AAS) i.e., BAK-12 or Mobile Aircraft Arresting System (MAAS). The system utilizes the tear strength of interwoven nylon straps to provide the energy absorption capability necessary to stop the forward motion of troubled aircraft.
