Paper Abstract

Reconnaissance Cameras are now controlled by real-time computer/microprocessor systems. The processor may control the camera stabilization and scanning, autofocus, exposure control and data annotation functions. Operator interface may be minimal with a simple control panel or quite extensive with sophisticated display/keypad subsystems. Target selection may be controlled by an operator or the camera may be automatically driven by the processor system using a predetermined mission profile updated by aircraft flight data.
