3 May 2012 LandSafe precision flight instrumentation system: the DVE solution
Author Affiliations +
Helicopter hover, landing, and take-offs in dust, fog, rain, snow, and high winds is an integral part of military and commercial flight operations. OADS has developed and flight-tested an LDV-based optical sensor suite capable of measuring height above ground, groundspeed, and air data at a FCS capable data rate from a helicopter platform under all environmental and weather conditions. This paper presents capabilities and flight-test results of this high-resolution standalone Precision Flight Instrumentation System.
