The image performance analysis of the second set of flights for the DB-110 demonstration reconnaissance camera system is presented. The DB-110 demonstration sensor consists of a dual band (visible/MWIR) LOROP camera developed by Raytheon for continuous day/night operation. The second image collection set was conducted this summer at various areas in the UK with the DB-110 mounted in a pod on the Strike Attack Operational Evaluation Unit (SAOEU) Tornado Squadron Aircraft. These result are compared to the predicted performance and prior imagery collected in the winter of 1997 at other sites in the UK with the DERA Tornado GR1 Aircraft. The NIIRS scale was used as the image performance metric. The predicted performance shows good agreement with the measured data. Sample imagery from both the winter and summer collections are also presented.
