Remotely Piloted Vehicles (RPV's) are versatile aerial platforms which can be piloted by radio link from a remote control point. The latest model features a removable modular nose designed to carry a variety of payloads for reconnaissance, electronic warfare and strike missions. This paper describes the interface of three sensor systems to RPV's -the KS-120 camera, the Perkin-Elmer KA-98 prototype laser line scanner and the prototype Philco Ford laser target designator. The interface to the modular nose YBGM-34C multi-mission RPV is discussed along with the interfaces to the BGM-34B and AQM-34M RPV's. A brief history of reconnaissance RPV's is given.
