Autonomous precision landings for VTOL and fixed-wing aircraft
Daedalean's safe landing guidance is a self-contained, on-board vision-based position and map source that enables choosing the best available landing spots.
The system continuously outputs areas in sight which are suitable for emergency, precautionary and normal landing and confirms the intended area is safe to land (e.g., by real-time monitoring of dynamic ground obstacles).
It consists of two avionics-grade cameras with integrated MEMS IMUs and a computing platform running Daedalean's algorithms that in real time combine input from the cameras and IMUs to provide accurate landing guidance comparable to ILS or a manual landing by a human pilot.
