Peer Reviewed

Abstract: THIS PAPER DISCUSSES the importance of allweather capability and the advancements that are being made toward final operational nonvisual landings. The importauce of system concept considerations is stressed. Manmachine interfaces, sensor integration, system redundancy, and monitoring are some of the systems considerations discussed. Guidance and flight control techniques for Category II and III operations are presented. New Category III functions include flare and runway alignment/ rollout systems now under design and development.
