The Canadian Forces have developed a capability of safely operating a 19,000 lb anti-submarine helicopter from an escort-sized naval ship at night, in conditions of reduced visibility and in sea states which cause the ship to roll as much as 30 deg. This paper reviews the development of this program, outlines the current capabilities and limitations of the system, and discusses the Canadian concept of operating destroyer-borne helicopters.
