Paper Abstract

Long focal length devices, both optical and electro-optical, will have an important position in the sensor suite of future tactical reconnaissance aircraft. Careful attention must be paid to aircrew capabilities and needs during system design and integration if these devices are to be fully exploited. Man/machine function allocation and aircrew needs with respect to information and control requirements are particularly critical. The sensitivity of system performance to design decisions related to these issues is discussed.
