Air-to-naval contact: operations and limitations for embarked aircraft

Replay of the conferences of January 18, 2023 at the Cité des Sciences et de l’industrie

The movements of a ship carrying fixed or rotary-wing aircraft depend on the state of the sea and are therefore difficult to predict. The use of aircraft is therefore subject to very specific conditions, both from the point of view of landing and take-off/catapulting techniques and from the point of view of maintaining the safety of the ship as a whole. The aircraft themselves must be adapted to these conditions; specific study means (simulations in particular) make it possible to maximise operational efficiency.
