Abstract
Significant strides have been made during the past few years in the development and standardization of rotary head helical scan digital recorders, for reconnaissance applications. Two years ago at the 30th Annual, International Symposium on Optical & Optoelectronic Applied Science & Engineering, San Diego, this recording technology was reviewed. This paper provides an update of the progress of that development and standardization process. It begins with a brief review of the reconnaissance requirements, as viewed by the recording industry, then and now. Following this, an update of candidate recorder types, including the magnetic media and cassettes, fulfilling these requirements are discussed. Some potential problems facing the industry are then mentioned, and lastly, a brief look into the future is provided.
