Paper Abstract

Since 1994 a reconnaissance system has been developed for the German Air Force (GAF) consisting of a pod structure equipped with different sensors and a ground station. It can be used day and night due to its optical and infrared sensors and is designed for altitudes ranging from 200 ft to 8000 ft. An adaptation to different aircraft and other sensors, such as electro-optical cameras is possible. The data from the reconnaissance missions can be evaluated in an especially designed ground station immediately after landing. In addition, the on-board evaluation of the IR-imagery is possible.
