New flight-control software meant to help aircraft “stick” carrier landings more cleanly could lead to major aircraft redesigns that would save money, reduce wear and tear on future aircraft, and improve their overall performance, according to the Office of Naval Research (ONR), which has been spearheading the technology’s development. A new algorithm embedded in the flight-control software augments the landing approach, ONR says. Coupled with an experimental shipboard light system ...
