The development of a new generation reconnaissance pod for the German Air Force started in 1994. The pod will be carried on the centerline station of the IDS Tornado. The pod contains two optical, aerial film cameras and one infrared linescanner with digital tape recording for eg. on-board image exploitation. Deutsche Aerospace AG (DASA) is the prime contractor for the overall reconnaissance program which includes a ground exploitation system. The delivery of the first series system is scheduled for 1998.
