Paper Abstract

The definition of recording for "near real time reconnaissance" applications is reviewed along with the requirements for a recorder to be used in this application. Next the storage medium (magnetic tape) and its importance is discussed. Following this, the recording technologies available to achieve the required results are presented. Both longitudinal fixed head and helical scan rotary head technologies are considered along with some of their merits and demerits. Finally, a brief look into the future of this storage technology is presented.
