Paper Abstract

Reconnaissance interface products over the past ten years have focused on the interface between the aircraft, including its cockpit, and the peculiar interfaces required to control and annotate information in tactical reconnaissance sensors. Compared to older systems like those in the RF-4 which contains multiple boxes and analog interfaces, today's reconnaissance interface is much simpler in a single, highly reliable unit, controlled by its own programmable microprocessor. Furthermore, recent engineering development systems have demonstrated how this single, programmable unit can be adapted to a variety of sensors, including the recent mix and match requirement for electro optics and/or film type of sensors. This presentation provides a sampling of some of the many reconnaissance interface functions this unit can and does perform.
