Abstract:
The operation of helicopters on ships is one to most challenging tasks due to adverse weather conditions, the lack of visible cues, turbulent airwakes behind the ship and a moving confined landing spot on the ship. Currently, only a very limited number of pilot assistance systems are available to ease helicopter ship deck landings. The focus of this paper is the evaluation of a Head-DownDisplay(HDD),aHead-MountedDisplay(HMD)andtwodifferentAttitudeCommand Attitude Hold (ACAH) flight control architectures for ship deck landings based on piloted simulation. A ship deck landing scenario at the research flight simulation facility Air Vehicle Simulator (AVES) has been extended to include turbulent ship airwakes from high-fidelity Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). The pilot assistance systems have been implemented at the simulator and evaluated by four helicopter pilots. In particular, the results show a favorable potential of the Head-Mounted Display and the flight control architectures.
