Abstract

Rotorcraft operating in unprepared locations must be capable of safe flight in the presence of unmapped obstacles and absence of GPS, and must be able to quickly and reliably assess a potential landing zone's suitability for landing. This paper presents technologies that address these needs and the result of their application to an actual unmanned helicopter prototype.
