Paper Abstract

Technological and operational requirements for airborne photographic reconnaissance missions over the past several years have generated the need for a multi-mission, multi-mode sensor control system. It is desirable that the sensor control system maximize operator-pilot mission flexibility while minimizing operator-pilot interaction with the system and the sensors under its control. Ideally the sensor control system would be capable of performing its role when install-ed in a tactical fighter aircraft, which is subject to environ-mental and operational extremes, with little or no degredation of reconnaissance mission performance. This paper describes an integrated sensor control system developed by the Fairchild Space & Electronics Company (Fairchild) for the Northrop Corporation for use on the RF-5E reconnaissance aircraft.
