Paper Abstract

This paper surveys rotary head; helical scan, digital recorders available or under development for recon-naissance applications. It begins with a brief review of the recorder parameters used in categorizing and comparing recorders. Data rate and record time, two of the more important parameters, because they help determine the record/reproduce technology required, are then used to define three general catego-ries. Commercial TV recorder development progress is used to project what is likely to become available in the near future. Lastly, these categories are compared for data rate overlap and other characteristics.
