Houston Fearless has been manufacturing continuous aerial film processors for over 30 years. A deviation from the manual B5 and 79PP processing tanks was necessary to deliver processed film to photo interpreters at a higher rate and with more consistent high quality. The first Houston Fearless continuous processor was the A9, which was succeeded by several machines including the EH-4, EH-6A, EH-67, EH-75, the HTA Series, and finally the new "Carson" processor, the EH-108. Several of the processor models were for experimental or. limited application use, these specialty models offered color film processing and controllable sensitometric processing. The HTA was extremely dependable and rugged and therefore became the backbone of much of the high altitude ground support processing systems, both fixed and mobile. HTA processors are the only processing machines used in the Mobile Processing Center (MPC).
