Stratus Systems: Saving soldier's lives with quality design

By Jenny Peterson
If an Air Force or Navy fighter’s parachute or life jacket needs to automatically inflate in an emergency, there’s a good chance that the life-saving equipment was designed, manufactured and built at Stratus Systems in Belle Chasse. It’s where owner and lead design engineer Steven Becnel comes up with a variety of inventions that are designed to help save the lives of men and women in combat.
