Paper Abstract

Two (2) US Air Force-owned engineering development models of the AN/AAD-5 Infrared Reconnaissance Set were flight tested at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base during 1971. After a successful flight test, the next generation of this improved infrared sensor was built to undergo extensive qualification (i.e., bench) testing. The Environmental Protection Agency requested the use of the original models and in mid-1976 took possession of the sensors and peculiar support equipment. The equipment was slightly modified and adapted to a civilian aircraft, in which it is being used successfully to obtain data much needed by the Environmental Protection Agency.
