French term or phrase: Verrou DSP / verrou d'arrimage
A small technical section at the end of an otherwise non-technical document:

Payload dropping system for a military aircraft:

"La platforme est extrait de l'avion a travers le trappe de chargement par la methode d'arrachement a l'aide du parachute extracteur qui est mis en action au moment de pression du bouton de largage; dans ce cas, on voit fonctionner le verrou DSP, auquel est fixe l'emballage du VPS a l'aide de l'oreille de la plaque de raidissement."

"la parachute extracteur cisaille par l'intermediaire de la sangle la goupille du verrou d'arrimage de la platforme..."

Could this be latch in this context??
Stowage latch pin??

agree  chris collister: or locking pin. I think the idea is that the goupille is sheared by a sharp yank on the sangle, and then the verrou is free to come out, releasing the parachute from its anchor-point on the floor.
