Ninety-eight obstacle strikes by US Army aircraft are analyzed with a view toward influencing the design of airborne obstacle avoidance systems. Considered in the report are the salient factors relating to the accident location of the accident, type of aircraft involved, type of obstacle struck, aircraft mission, mode of flight, weather conditions, and altitude. Recommendations are made concerning operational features of an effective obstacle avoidance system. Author
