Paper Abstract

A sensor control system which contains several of the traditional reconnaissance sensor control functions such as sensor selection and control, camera trip pulse generation, Image Motion Compensation (IMC) voltage generation, and V/H conversion as well as data annota-tion, built in test equipment (BITE), and display of film frames remaining was developed for and is presently in use on the Demonstration RF-5E. Some of the methods employed on the RF-5E Demo to obtain functions such as microprocessor V/H conversion, IMC voltage generation, camera trip pulse generation, and data annotation are applicable to Long Range Oblique Photography (LOROP). The above 4 functions are described in some detail and the circuit techniques utilized to implement them into the RF-5E Demo Integrated Sensor Control System are discussed.
