NAVTOLAND (Navy Vertical Takeoff and Landing Capability Development) Project 770990

The NAVTOLAND project is the Navy's integrated systems approach to improve the V/STOL aircraft and helicopter operational capabilities at sea and in tactical sites from the current 200 foot ceiling and 1/2 nautical mile visibility weather minima and Sea State 3 level ship motion limits to the zero ceiling and 1/8 nm visibility and Sea State 5. A coordinated development of the aircraft flight control and display systems to provide flying qualities with satisfactory level of pilot workload and the shipboard and tactical site installed approach and landing guidance systems and visual landing aids to effect precision in touchdown will be applied toward improvement of the AV-8 Harrier and helicopter operations and development of total all-weather and rough sea operations of all future Navy and Marine Corps V/STOL aircraft and shipboard platforms and tactical sites.
