Can anyone help point me to information about the parachute system for Orion?  I need to get some information on the lengths of each part of the parachute.

I'm creating another animation of the Orion parachuting and want to make sure I have the chutes really accurate. 

Harness, leader lines, chute ropes, canopy, stuff like that.

I know I've seen documents with this information, but for the life of me I can't find it again.  All my Google searches return "Orion parachute test failure" and the like.

Several very good presentations in L2, including one from just a month or so ago.

I don't have a membership to L2 but thanks for the suggestion.  Definitely have to consider it.
