1462757 story Push a Button, Land on a Carrier 240 Posted by CowboyNeal on Saturday May 21, 2005 @10:59AM from the auto-pilots dept. sane? writes "Putting an aircraft down on a carrier in bad weather is the stuff of melodramatic Hollywood films. Automated systems for conventional aircraft and big carriers has been done for a while, but getting a hovering Harrier, helicopter, or future JSF to land on a pitching deck of a smaller ship is a different matter. This week QinetiQ demonstrated a complete autoland - a significant step towards making the future JSF work."
