The LORAP, Long Range Aerial Panoramic photographic system, is the latest addition to a total panoramic camera system development by Fairchild Camera and Instrument Corporation. The LORAP system program consists of the KA-112A panoramic camera, pod, pylon, cockpit control, aircraft modification, AGE (pod/camera handling and electronic test equipment), handbooks, training, spares, and field service. The LORAP is designed to provide long range side looking high acuity panoramic photography taken from aboard present or future high performance aircraft. The camera subsystem design utilizes an F/5.6, 72 inch focal length lens mounted within a lightweight graphite epoxy lens barrel. The panoramic design utilizes the "split-scan" principle and affords image motion compensation, automatic roll, pitch, and yaw correction, automatic slant range focus, and manual pressure/temperature focus. The pod subsystem permits installation on multiple types of aircraft and affords inflight-selectable starboard or port sector scanning from the horizon down to a 36° depression angle on either side of the flight path. The airborne LORAP System follows a total system concept from conceptual design through operational use. Several systems have been delivered and the associated airborne and ground support hardware, software, logistic support equipment and trained personnel have been established "on site" through the participation of Fairchild Camera and Instrument Corporation personnel assisted by Lockheed Aircraft Services.
