Even though film is often thought to be a dinosaur in modern airborne acquisition systems it is still unsurpassed in capability to provide the most resolution and detail to the analyst who is chartered to extract the highest level of intelligence possible. The inability to quickly provide information from acquired film imagery has been one reason stated by field commanders as to their preference for "all digital" camera systems. Digitally scanning the film and adding modern digital processing to scanned images would enhance the "data mining" of archived imagery and could also maintain the exceptional quality of image data from today's film systems. New software developments, if applied, could also shorted the time line betwen the acquisition and the user.
