Paper Abstract

The Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division at Warminster, Pennsylvania is sponsoring the development of a low-cost, high-performance, standoff surveillance/reconnaissance system under a Small Business Innovation Research contract. The contract calls for development and flight test of a prototype/brassboard standoff system that approaches the performance of existing systems at a fraction of their cost. This paper describes the performance, physical and cost objectives, details the trade-off analyses performed, and presents the results of preliminary flight tests conducted in the spring of 1993. It also outlines the integration and software development required to meet the program objectives.
