This paper presents the Royal Danish Air Force (RDAF) Tactical Reconnaissance System (TRS) and is prepared by TERMA Elektronik AS, who is the main contractor for the program. The paper provides a run-through of issues related to the program, such as project status, overall system objectives, operational aspects, functionality and subsystems. Special attention is given to systems configurations, the criteria for selecting particular sensors and other subsystems, and, of course, the imagery - the capture of which is the ultimate objective of any reconnaissance system. The Ground Exploitation System (GES) used in TRS is also described. However, as the functions of the GES to a large extent reflects the military infrastructure of the RDAF emphasis in the presentation and this paper has been put on the TRS Airborne Segment. Please note, that this paper should be viewed as a help to attendees of address 3751 04 (Danish F-16 Recce Pod Program) and not as a description of the TRS in its own right.
