Abstract
To satisfy current reconnaissance trends, high resolution, small format cameras are becoming more necessary.. The KS-121A Camera System is representative of this trend. Developed to improve the reconnaissance capabilities of the RF-5 aircraft, the KS-121A 70-mm Frame Camera. System offers high resolution in a small format. The small size permits the mounting of four cameras in the aircraft nose which may be configured to suit a variety of missions. The camera features interchangeable lenses of three focal lengths, a wide range of shutter speeds, automatic control, of both shutter speed and lens relative aperture, vacuum film flattening, and built-in-test.
