AbstractIn order to maintain normal flight deck procedures on aircraft carriers that launch UAVs and UCAVs in addition to piloted aircraft, we propose a plane-mounted high-resolution camera with innovative wide field optics. It will image objects as small as a deck director's hands at distances of 10 to 250 feet and through a ±100° field-of-view. The system works with algorithm-based gesture recognition software that identifies relevant obstacles, motions, people, and physical commands. This machine vision system will, in effect, replicate a pilot's taxiing behavior.
