20 February 1987 Airborne Tactical Application Of The DCRS
Author Affiliations +
Since the invention of the film camera system, airborne reconnaissance missions to support tactical operations have basically consisted of an over flight of the suspect territory, the taking of a picture or snapshot of that territory, and the safe return of the aircraft. Immediately after landing the film is retrieved from the aircraft and rushed off to the labs for development. When these pictures are ready they are given to interpreters who analyze the results. All of this is to allow military commanders to make tactical command decisions.
