Paper Abstract

Increase the reliability of the LOROP system and decrease its complexity by combining electronic functions to minimize interfaces. Integrating sensor controls with the Data Annotation function increases system reliability through utilization of a single unit. Single computer interface or data transfer from the aircraft to control sensor operation and annotation of photography reduces circuitry required. ADAS (Airborne Data Annotation Systems) have kept pace with the improvements in other reconnaissance systems. Microprocessors, digital multiplexing techniques and other advances in avionic components and techniques have been incorporated into recent Sensor Control/Data Display Set designs. A serial computer interface can be used to link the aircraft computer with multi-sensor, multi-purpose reconnaissance systems through a single unit. System designs in the future can utilize the ADAS as the programmable center-of-information link to the aircraft for annota-tion while performing other reconnaissance system control functions specifically required in LOROP systems. This paper addresses ADAS system functions which have been incorporated into a single unit in present reconnaissance systems and which are to be incorporated in future reconnaissance systems for LOROP.
