Paper Abstract

Long Range Standoff reconnaissance has historically been associated with strategic rather than tactical missions. Current Long Range Oblique Photography (LOROP) systems are typically relegated to the special mission category, and have not fully been considered as a part of tactical reconnaissance. The tactical reconnaissance equipment deployed today is operated either on an overflight mode or in fairly close proximity to the target area. Excellent imagery is obtained in both the visible and infrared bands, and the aspect angle between the target and sensor is necessary to meet many of the reconnaissance mission goals.
