Paper Abstract

A variety of new and significantly improved reconnaissance sensors are evolving from advanced development programs. The time has come to combine these individual capabilities into a tactical reconnaissance operation which includes an effective near realtime capability. A generic approach to near realtime reconnaissance is described which employs several airborne sensors and includes both airborne and ground data management devices and procedures. Automatic data processing and extensive use of pre-existing information help minimize the amount of irrelevant data presented to human observers. The human observer represents the final and essential filtering agent required to reduce the information data rate to a level suitable for dissemination over jam resistant data links for rapid access to tactical commanders.
