    "PHASST"

    Switchblades - Featured in Die Another Day, the Switchblade is essentially a one-man glider shaped like a fighter jet. It features retractable wings that control the speed and trajectory of the craft. Fitted with the same material on a stealth bomber, the switchblade allows Bond and Jinx to enter North Korea undetected. The switchblade is based on a workable model called "PHASST" (Programmable High Altitude Single Soldier Transport).

    These guys are a little late on the draw with the same idea but have some video.

    I think there's better ways to serve your country other than turning your body into a human missle....

    Well they do still have on parachutes. It would probably allow the drop plane to not have to get as close to the drop zone as it does now. Just wonder if it will go the way of the jet pack, or be used in SF Ops. like as a new type of HALO jump. Could be cool.

    Yeah, but seriously, couldn't you just send a missle instead?
