Sky Hooks: The Autobiography of John Kane
About this deal
The Fulton surface-to-air recovery system ( STARS), also known as Skyhook, is a system used by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), United States Air Force, and United States Navy for retrieving individuals on the ground using aircraft such as the MC-130E Combat Talon I and B-17 Flying Fortress. It involves using an overall-type harness and a self-inflating balloon with an attached lift line. An MC-130E engages the line with its V-shaped yoke and the person is reeled on board. Red flags on the lift line guide the pilot during daylight recoveries; lights on the lift line are used for night recoveries. Recovery kits were designed for one- and two-man retrievals.

Different synchronous non-rotating orbiting skyhook concepts and versions have been proposed, starting with Isaacs in 1966,   Artsutanov in 1967,   Pearson  and Colombo in 1975,  Kalaghan in 1978,  and Braginski in 1985.  The versions with the best potential involve a much shorter tether in low Earth orbit, which rotates in its orbital plane and whose ends brush the upper Earth atmosphere, with the rotational motion cancelling the orbital motion at ground level. These "rotating" skyhook versions were proposed by Moravec in 1976,   and Sarmont in 1994.   Lang-Lemchert, Susan (2005). "Quiet Achiever" (PDF). Susan Lang-Lemchert . Retrieved 26 November 2009.
