Paper Abstract

Tactical aerial reconnaissance is entering an era of real-time sensor exploitation and intelligence reporting. The selection of the ground station site for optimum utilization of intelligence reporting and softcopy image dissemination will have a significant impact on the reception of sensor and aircraft signals. Precise Target Analysis (PTA) is a personal-computer-based program to perform analytical site selection based upon numerous critical factors. These factors include line-of-sight obstruction by buildings, tree lines, and terrain, as well as operational planning considerations.
