The Reconnaissance Reporting Facility Exploitation Shelter is the ground facility for the real time exploitation of data-linked infrared imagery. It is being developed by the Rome Air Development Center in support of the Quick Strike Reconnais'sance Program. The integration of off-the-shelf equipment and technology will provide the capability to rapidly detect, identify, and generate reports for tactical, time-sensitive targets. Target reports will be immediately transmitted to strike decision makers. Exploitation in the real time environment is accomplished in a "production-line" fashion. One interpreter or set of interpreters is assigned responsibility for target detection only. Detection interpreters cue identification interpreters to specific segments of imagery for the detailed target identification and report generation. Future research and development efforts applicable to the real time exploitation environment are automatic target cueing and visual image enhancements for target detection and identification. Work in these. areas should emphasize improving the speed and accuracy of target detection and reporting.
