Improved Ground Collision Avoidance
NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center, CA, United States
NASA Armstrong has developed an improved ground collision avoidance technology for aircraft. Using algorithms developed for fighter aircraft, this mobile/handheld platform that can be used on general aircraft. The system offers high fidelity terrain mapping, enhanced vehicle performance modeling, multidirectional avoidance techniques, and user-friendly warning systems.
