Paper Abstract

Recent developments in the transition from film to electro-optics in airborne reconnaissance have created a unique disparity between modem imaging sensor capabilities and those of the associated data recording hardware. Not only is high data rate digital recorder technology several steps behind that of sensors, as it does become available, it promises to be, at first, both large and expensive. In an effort to counteract serious setbacks in airborne reconnaissance systems development and short term deployment, an analog recording alternative deserves close attention. This paper describes a small format high bandwidth analog cassette recorder, HIBAR, currently being proposed to address this problem. Also described is such a recorder's role in today's chzinging threat and budget environments. Design goals are also provided.
