Optionally piloted rotorcraft guidance and operator interface for shipboard operations

Abstract

A guidance, navigation, control, and operator interface system has been developed to enable an optionally piloted helicopter to perform flight operations relative to a moving platform as well as takeoff and land on that moving platform. The normal utilization of this system is to operate to/from a ship. The aircraft itself has a 1200 pound gross weight. The system itself has been successfully tested in simulation and flight testing, including takeoff and landing from a moving platform with and without a pilot onboard. The system and results are described here, including a concept for simplifying the operator interface for these types of operations.
