This proposal describes an all optical fixed wing landing system for a aircraft carrier capable of flying an aircraft all the way to landing in a RF denied environment. The precision, reliability and accuracy of this system will allow control the aircraft without the help from the pilot all the way to touch down. It will work seamlessly with UAVs and manned aircraft that have been retrofitted with the small landing control module. It will use eye safe sources in the IR and could possible integrate and work in parallel with the existing SGSI systems in use today. In addition it will provide a full duplex communication system at high data rates.
