RIG for the upcoming supersonic skydive

OK, so Felix is going to jump from 120,000 feet and fall at over Mach 1.

Movie here: http://www.RedBullStratos.com

Infinity rig will be used at an estimated 800 mph (1300 km/h) freefall.

Here, the Infinity rig manufacturer Kelly Farrington talks more about the rig design. He mentiones the drogue that is independent (but not neccessarily) from main or reserve parachute deployment system:

Kelly - can you outline all the differences between a regular Infinity (like mine Wink), and the one that will be used by Felix?
