Newman, S. (2005) Shipborne aviation: an introduction Journal of Aerospace Engineering, 219, (5), pp. 363-368. (doi:10.1243/095441005X30324).

The evolution of air vehicles for use on board a ship spans a period of nearly 150 years. Starting with observation balloons in the American Civil War, the development has moved to the Joint Strike Fighter, an aircraft of immense technical sophistication and a potent weapon. The design requirements of both ship and aircraft spawn conflicts and the two technologies are now required to work in total unison. This paper dicusses the evolution and how the various wars have shaped the most demanding of aeronautical disciplines.
