Paper Abstract

Recent sensor control development systems, designed for demonstration of Electro Optics (EO) Systems, have required similar control signals as those required for film sensors. From this similarity of interface controls and functions (along with cost considerations) comes the realization that reconnaissance systems of the future must evolve in a modular fashion to produce the level of sophistication, or complexity, required for each specific mission. Fairchild Communications & Electronics Company has developed an AN/ASQ-197, Sensor Control/Data Display Set (SC/DDS) to control sensors and annotate film in the F/A-18(R) Reconnaissance System. The AN/ASQ-197, with its programmability, is the basic building block of this hybrid system of the future, for film and/or EO. This paper presents some of the considerations and features of such a system.
