GA-ASI Automatic Takeoff and Landing Systems: Past, Present, and Future 15 June 2023 1130 - 1200

For over 20 years, General Atomics-Aeronautical Systems Inc. (GA-ASI) has been developing and refining the Automatic Takeoff and Landing Capability (ATLC) used across its fleet of UAVs. Originally demonstrated in 2002, ATLC has since been integrated into nearly all the 27+ aircraft variants that GA-ASI produces. Today, this system is used in broad applications to reduce pilot workload, improve safety of operations, enable operations in inclement weather, and more. This presentation will review the history of ATLC, introduce the fundamental design components of the system, and share a few highlights of what’s in store for ATLC in the future.
