Projection-Mapping Landing Aid superimposes an image of the landing scenario on the hangar face for the pilot to have situational awareness as they land. The image integrates relevant sensing data augmenting the perception of the pilot.

Augmented reality for the helicopter landing on ship helidecks has these benefits:

  • Safe landing in low-light conditions due to improved perception
  • Reduced workload for pilots
  • Eliminates or supplements landing signal officer (LSO) on deck
  • Substitute radio data communication
  • Landing data available for analysis and training
  • Display for deck crew communications
  • Low-impact installation
