ATR is developing technology that will enable safe and reliable launch and recovery of fixed-wing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) on small surface combatants. Funding agencies for this work include the Office of Naval Research and DARPA. This project involves advanced sensing technology integration, ship motion compensation control development, and mechanical system development. Current work includes the development of a test bed to demonstrate ship motion stabilization technology and the development of a full-scale model of the UAV capture mechanism.
