The original nasa test report was on 2e5

That's where I took the dimentions from.
Canopies like this were used as steerable precision parachutes.
These were called "paradactyl".

Today the are back in fabrication as safety or auxiliary back-up chutes.

This 2 line kite is very easy and fast to make.
Only 22 bridles
The paratrooper is only for show.
When the rod is replaced by 2 extra bridle lines, the kite has no more "hard" items
