Contingency Landing System initiative offers portability for airbase opening forces

Two Airmen from the Electronic Systems Center of Hanscom Air Force Base, Mass., put together a portable contingency landing system that's carried in backpacks during Air Mobility Battlelab's Portable Contingency Landing System Initiative concept demonstration at Duke Field, Fla., in July 2008. The initiative calls for a CLS that can bridge the gap between current precision landing systems and a future, fully-automated, on-board autonomous landing capability for military aircraft landing in remote airfields. The portability factor helps contingency response forces who set up the contingency landing system. (U.S. Air Force Photo)
