Paper Abstract

Demonstrations during the summer of 1988 culminated in a quick-turn Naval Air Development Center (NADC) engineering effort which demonstrated the feasibility of flying an Expeditionary Tactical Air Reconnaissance Pod System (ETARS) Pod on an AV-8B Night Attack aircraft. Fairchild's AN/ASQ-197 Sensor Control-Data Display Set (SC-DDS), which had recently completed Full Scale Development (FSD) Testing for the Film version of F/A-18, was modified to control the Pod, its sensors, the video tape recorder and other communication equipment from a single rotary switch, four caution indicators and the standard AV-8B multiplex bus. This paper describes the functions performed by the AN/ASQ-197 Modified during the successful AV-8B ETARS feasibility flight demonstration program.
