Paper Abstract

As anticipated costs associated with development and integration of revolutionary reconnaissance assets such as ATARS continues to escalate, users in the recce community are evaluating alternate approaches; combining real time acquisition and visualization of recce imagery while preserving the enhanced resolution of film and capitalizing on the economic advantages of reusing existing systems. The approach described in this paper illustrates an upgrade path for conversion of the Tactical Air Reconnaissance Pod System (TARPS) to partial and full Electro Optic (EO) capability, providing both `quick look' and `long look' capabilities at a fraction of the cost for competing systems.
