Abstract : A requirement (ENSURE 301) exists for a system which will enable a pilot to hover in the CH-54 with reasonable precision (undefined) over a predetermined point for 10 minutes or less in IFR conditions while personnel on the ground attach or remove cargo from a sling load. Several schemes have been proposed by airframe and electronics contractors, including different control systems, displays, and sensors. The Government is required to evaluate the various proposals and the purpose of the paper is to illustrate how using a simulation in the evaluation can suggest a conceptual solution. (Author)
