Paper Abstract

In January 1991, Teledyne Ryan Aeronautical embarked on a company funded, quick reaction program to develop a real-time reconnaissance kit which can be installed on existing BQM- 34A target aircraft. This kit was designed to provide real-time, day-night, reconnaissance video imagery to the battlefield commander in the field or to the airborne command post. This imagery is used to direct or redirect airborne strike aircraft using the latest targeting and bomb-damage assessment information available. This system uses low-cost, broadcast TV, recording, and data communications equipment technology readily available in either the commercial or military markets. The ARGUS system was subsequently demonstrated during Green Flag 92-5 at Nellis AFB, NV using two modified BQM-34A Firebee Target aircraft.
