Paper Abstract

To conduct observation flights under the terms of the Open Skies Treaty, Germany is using the surveillance system installed in a Tupolev 154 M aircraft. The equipment provides the mission crew with autonomous long range mission capability, totally independent of ground support. The mission equipment provides the necessary functions requires to perform the observation tasks like: mission planning; terrain mapping; video supervision of the overflown terrain; aircraft position reference; and generating, and storing of ground image data. The system described in this paper defines a Video Optical System for high resolution color images. Images can be displayed on board in real time, annotated with mission relevant data, like date, time, location, mission data and ground coordinates. The high resolution images will be recorded on a digital tape recorder. The all digital data handling guarantees optimized results for ground evaluations.
