Data processing requirements for automated reconnaissance target acquisition for F-14 aircraft with tactical air reconnaissance pod system (TARPS) capability is discussed. Low-cost upgrades to an existing, flight-proven reconnaissance equipment controller are described. The resulting system is a pre-flight programmable equipment controller and data annotation driver for EO and film based reconnaissance sensors.
