Airbus, AGI sign landing system MoU

30th November 2016 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Airbus Defence and Space and the UK’s Aeronautical and General Instruments (AGI) will cooperate on integrating Airbus DeckFinder products into AGI’s ship based visual landing aid systems under a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) announced on 28 November.

The jointly marketed system will provide navies with the capability to operate both manned and unmanned air vehicles from flight decks in challenging all-weather environments.

AGI’s technologies provide visual lighting systems to support manned aircraft operations, while DeckFinder is a radio-frequency, GPS-independent, relative positioning system that enables the control of unmanned systems during take-off and landing periods. 

The MoU foresees a combined market ready product in the first half of 2017.
