Paper Abstract

The KS-147A Long Range Oblique Photographic (LOROP) Camera is being developed to satisfy an operational tactical reconnaissance requirement. This paper addresses that specific requirement and the capabilities of the KS-147A in the Northrop RF-5E to meet that need. Particular emphasis is given to specific flight planning parameters, maintenance preparations and ground requirements of the camera system, inflight considerations and typical mission profiles. The paper concludes with an assessment of the RF-5E/KS-147A Camera system to provide an effective tactical reconnaissance standoff capability.
