Paper Abstract

A Reconnaissance Management System (RMS) for use in a Low Intensity Reconnaissance Aircraft (LIRA) is described. This RMS includes all system control functions (such as sensor selection and pointing) pod management functions (doors, turrets, etc.) as well as processing of the video output of the selected sensor to produce a standard format video signal for viewing and recording. The LIRA/RMS was required to utilize to the greatest extent possible existing equipment and designs in order to expedite development and allow for concept validation flight demonstrations on an accelerated schedule. The LIRA RMS which was flight demonstrated is described as well as system enhancements which have been added since the flight demos and others which are currently being developed.
