23 December 1985 Ground and Flight Tests of TORNADO Reconnaissance Pod
Author Affiliations +
This paper describes the efforts, which have been performed to qualify the newly designed TORNADO reconnaissance Pod for its application in the various services. These efforts included comprehensive ground and flight tests. Reconnaissance Pods are designed so as not to limit the flight performance of the air-craft. On the other hand reconnaissance equipments require a stable environment which is in contrast to the ambient conditions of outboard stores on high performance fighter aircraft. To ensure that the designers fullfilled their tasks to match these conflicting requirements to a good technical solution, the tests described in this paper have been carried out.
