SA Photonics has developed a concept for our Multiple Optical Beam Landing System (MOBLS) to provide autonomous landing of aircraft in RF denied environments. MOBLS utilizes multiple, redundant methods to determine the real-time location and bearing of the aircraft relative to the carrier-based landing strip. By having built in redundant modalities, MOBLS provides highly reliable landing information. MOBLS is entirely based on optical signals, providing landing operation and high data rate communications between the aircraft and carrier in RF and GPS denied environments. MOBLS also operates entirely without operator intervention.
