Paper Abstract

For several decades, airlines have relied on autopilots to guide and land aircraft in very low visibility conditions. In the 1990s, new technology such as the satellite-based, U.S. Global Positioning System and imaging systems based on infrared and millimeter wave radar, provide an opportunity to dramatically change the low-visibility landing paradigm. While the technology may be available, however, the challenge is to apply it in a way that is workable operationally and is sensitive to current airline economic reality.
