Abstract
This paper describes Northrop's developmental Chukar 111-R reconnaissance system, which is based on the Chukar III target drone. Some military needs for reconnaissance and the advantages of employing an unmanned air vehicle to satisfy these needs are noted. Next, features incorporated into the new Chukar III-R reconnaissance system are described. These features include a high performance unmanned air vehicle (UAV), an infrared line scanner for imaOng targets, radio position-fix enhanced navigation, and a new mission planning and control station. Sensor slight test results, a pay-load mockup, and mission planning and image exploitation capabilities are discussed. The advantages of high speed and low observability are cited. Launch and retrieval techniques are described.
