Safe Emergency Landing In Alpine Terrain



Although aviation generally is considered to be very safe, emergency landings need to be done regularly, either as part of an operation or as a result of a failure in the aircraft. In the context of the proposed study there are two main categories of emergency landings of interest: (1) Landings done by a Search and Rescue helicopters on a mission to assist in case of an emergency situation on ground; (2) 2. Emergency landings done by a single engine aircraft e.g. as a consequence of an engine failure. SELIAT aims at enabling a pre-selection of potential landing sites and guidance by the integrated flight instruments in order to increase the safety of the operations and reduce the response time, potentially saving more lives also among the casualties on the ground. In the second case SELIAT aims at providing relevant information about suitable landing sites within reach of the aircraft (possibly without engine power) as well as obtaining guidance to reach the selected site, in order to increase the probability of a successful emergency landing.
