dc.description.abstractThis paper examines some of the challenges that must be overcome if future aerial delivery systems are to have the capability to land on the _ight deck of a ship underway. The unique aspects of trajectory planning for landing on a shipメs _ight deck are _rst examined, followed by formulation of the position estimation problem for a moving target. Some preliminary investigations into characterizing the wind over a moving landing platform at sea are then described. Finally, experimental results are presented for testing of a small prototype autonomous parafoil with a simple moving target on land.en_US
