Paper Abstract

Future air force reconnaissance systems will consist of digital EO/IR sensors, various radar systems, passive microwave sensor readings from electronic warfare pods/systems etc. All this sensor information must be fused and processed in the reconnaissance management system, RMS. By using the full sensor suite of a modem multirole combat aircraft, e.g. the Swedish JAS 39 GRJPEN, together with integrated communication with other aircraft and ground control, the reconnaissance capability is maximised. The reconnaissance is aimed at “information superiority” that is, giving the entire armed force an advantage in knowledge about hostile situations and reduces the time to react correctly. We will discuss the various demand scenarios as well as the type of functions a future RMS will have to implement.
