Paper Abstract

This paper highlights, in a very general sense, some of the issues, challenges and opportunities involved in developing and employing visible spectrum electro-optic systems for tactical reconnaissance. Visible spectrum electro-optic systems are viewed from some of the technical and management issues associated with the move from film into electro-optics. The challenge of retaining the high-resolution capability present in today's systems while transitioning into electro-optic systems is presented in terms of data rate management and handling. The paper concludes that the transition from film-based systems to electro-optic systems will be evolutionary rather than revolutionary.
