Paper Abstract

This paper describes the AN/AAD-5 infrared reconnaissance sensor, a high performance line scanner which was developed by the HRC under USAF Systems Command funding for use in tactical aircraft like the Phantom II RF4. A brief history of the development cycle is given, followed by discussions of some of the technical and program problems encountered during the system design and the preproduction phases. The current production status of the AN/AAD-5 is then discussed and samples of the hard copy output from the sensor are shown. The entire paper is unclassified.
