Abstract
The Canadian Forces have initiated a study of its current maritime helicopter operations in an attempt to reduce the launch and recovery time, and increase the operational limits which are currently imposed by atmospheric and environmental conditions. The report is a summary of the various approach and landing aids which are currently employed by NATO countries, or are in the conceptual stages of development. The systems' advantages and disadvantages are discussed along with the systems' practicality and suitability for use within the Canadian Forces maritime helicopter environment.
