Paper Abstract

Reconnaissance, in particular visible-spectrum reconnaissance, is too often viewed exclusively in its military role. Dramatic advances in technology accompanying the evolution toward electro-optical imaging and the associated digital transmission, storage and display of visible-spectrum imagery argue that some fresh looks be taken at missions and applications. As a framework for developing some thought-provoking concepts, visible-spectrum reconnaissance is addressed in the context of supporting national objectives: military, political and economic. Examples of historical and postulated missions and applications provide a basis for developing an expanded dialogue and approach by the visible-spectrum reconnaissance community.
