Abstract:

Providing precision guidance to an aircraft landing aboard a ship requires a robust and extremely accurate positioning system. Several carrier controlled approach aids such as the ANSPN-42A46 Automatic Carrier Landing System currently provide the required accuracy for the U.S. Navy. However, these systems experience reduced performance in precipitation and are difficult to maintain. A relative Global Positioning System GPS Kinematic Carrier Phase Tracking KCPT solution has the potential to provide a highly accurate solution for shipboard landing operations which is unaffected by weather.
