System for Multi-Ship Brown-Out Helicopter Landings
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Arete Associates (Arete) proposes to develop advanced algorithms for landing area characterization from LADAR data for the purpose of assisting helicopter landing during brownout. Our algorithms will discriminate ground from non-ground objects; remove outlier data; identify flat areas/pits/trenches; and characterize level, uncluttered areas suitable for a helicopter landing zone. These processed data can then be distributed to a fleet of helicopters to plan a safe landing for each vehicle.
