Paper Abstract

As part of the ATARS program, Phase I, a reconnaissance pod system was flown to demonstrate the EO capability for manned tactical reconnaissance. Test flights were made at General Dynamics Fort Worth (GD/FW) and Edwards Air Force Base (EAFB) between June and September 1986 using an F-16D aircraft. The GD/FW developed pod consisted of a Reconnaissance Interface Unit (RIU), KS-153 sensors, an RS-730 Infrared Line Scanner, a Video Management System, and a Data Link. The recce system command, control, and aircraft interfaces were performed by the RIU. The following describes the RIU's functions in this recce pod, the system integration and control problems encountered and the solutions provided by the RIU during integration and flight testing.
