Very interesting.
Rosa said past work has also identified a promising visual landing aids (VLA) concept optimised for SRVL and stabilised against deck motion. "We will continue to mature the SRVL-optimised VLA arrangements, look at the possible 'tuning' of the JSF flight-control laws, and further study the effect of SRVL on the CVF sortie generation rate," he said. The capability's full scope will be confirmed after flight trials from the 65,000t vessels, which are due to enter service in 2014 and 2016, respectively.
The investigation of visual landing aids, and tweaking with control laws suggests that SRVL may not be as straight forward has some have indicated.

Too bad the old, 'it's better to stop and the land, than land and then stop', idea seems to be, being eroded.
