An outline of the requirements for a modern reconnaissance system as fitted to a tactical strike aircraft is presented. Film based reconnaissance systems, as used in many existing installations, are discussed with emphasis on their failure to meet many of the requirements. Systems providing aircrew with immediate access to sensor data are discussed. Particular emphasis is given to the Panavia Tornado RMS 3000 system utilising video tape and cockpit imagery. A basic ground station which could be used with the RMS 3000 system is discussed, stressing the wide range of facilities provided. The paper concludes with some future possibilities for this type of system.
