Paper Abstract

Timely reconnaissance information has always been a highly valued commodity. In early conflicts, higher elevations were sought to overlook and observe the battlefield. Technology has progressed to provide the latest in modern airborne reconnaissance, wherein sensor imagery is recorded and transmitted in mid-flight to an earth surface station for immediate exploitation. The benefits of designing reconnaissance systems for maximum interoperability are obvious. The types of interoperability of concern are: interoperability between airborne collection and surface exploitation systems, interoperability between surface systems, and interoperability among the functional modules of the surface systems. The goal is to provide means for interoperability among the digital electronic imagery reconnaissance assets of the United States and its allies.
