Article asking for more money to design new military helicopters.


NASA has been working on what it calls Autonomous Landing and Hazard
Avoidance Technology (ALHAT). This is to help helicopters and
spacecraft land without crashing into rocks.

<http://alhat.jpl.nasa.gov>

NASA wants to use it on the Moon but there are plenty of rocks on the
Earth. Would the ALHAT equipment be useful on military helicopters?
