Information Systems plays an integral part in aircraft launch and recovery, from managing air operations onboard the ship to gathering wind speed and other data for landing signal officers to relay to pilots in the air. Advanced technologies and capable equipment are required to meet the needs of the fleet.
The Aircraft Launch and Recovery Equipment program provides the latest information system technologies to the fleet, including the Moriah, Wind Measuring and Indicating System (WMIS), Aviation Data Management and Control System (ADMACS) and Landing Signal Officer Display System (LSODS).
Moriah provides digital wind speed and direction information, including crosswind and headwind that supports tactical planning for air operations, combat, navigation and aircraft firefighting. Moriah is replacing all legacy wind systems.
ADMACS connects the air department, ship divisions and embarked staff who manage the aircraft launch and recovery operations on CVN ships. ADMACS communicates real-time aviation and command-related data across the ship’s computer networks. Block upgrades ensure the fleet’s information systems are current, which affords safer and smoother operations.
