Paper Abstract

Tactical Reconnaissance (Tac Recce) Concept of Operations (CONOPS) is based on the fundamentals ofMission Planning, Mission Execution, Data Analysis and Data Distribution. These fundamentals apply whether addressing historic missions, current equipment capabilities, or projecting future capabilities. This paper is intended to orient technical experts with the tasks that the operational users face and to help focus technical breakthroughs and upgrades into systems that help the warfighter efficiently and effectively achieve his goals. Many technical experts focus on the intricate technical details oftheir project and many times are not aware ofthe ultimate objective that their technology is intended to improve. As we briefly overview the fundamentals, remember where and how Tac Recce systems will be used. For a moment, put yourself in the mindset ofthose who are on the front lines, working long hours at numerous tasks, striving for efficiency and effectiveness. Technical advancements that can reduce the Tac Recce timeline and simplify operations can improve the end product which is key to critical warfighting decisions.
