Terahertz Relative Positioning: An Alternative to GPS for Aircraft Flying in Formation

Parker, John Scott.


  • Abstract: A new terahertz-frequency (THz) relative positioning capability is developed and demonstrated in simulation for the formation flight of cargo aircraft. Formation flight is used by the military for a wide variety of applications. This work specifically considers the precision airdrop of personnel and supplies over hostile territory. During these operations, aircraft must maintain precise ... read more
