Abstract:

Approach training currently relies solely on manual observation and verbal feedback to the pilot. This project aims to provide pilots and landing signal officers LSOs with valuable information about individual approaches in the carrier landing environment. The author investigated fully automatic flight path acquisition by means of computer vision-based analysis of platform camera video. The obtained data supports enhanced LSO training, real-time approach analysis, and pilot self-improvement through advanced review capabilities.
