Paper Abstract

The tactical airborne reconnaissance pod system (TARPS), flown on the U.S. Navy's F-14 Tomcat, is the primary source of tactical photographic imagery for America's armed forces today. Designed to be a short-term, interim system it has recently received both sensor and pod upgrades to maintain its effectiveness well past the year 2000 and provide a new baseline for future growth.
