Paper Abstract

In recent years Fairchild, as other aerospace corporations, has conducted internal reviews focused on commercialization of products originally developed for military applications. These efforts have yielded several products which marry the flexibility and cost incentives found in commercial systems with the uncompromising reliability required by demanding military environments. As a case in point, this paper will discuss a commercialized variant of Fairchild's Reconnaissance Mission Analysis & Planning System used in conjunction with our Reconnaissance Management System products to provide a comprehensive sensor control, data annotation, and mission planning functional for airborne reconnaissance operations in support of the Treaty on Open Skies.
