Abstract : Modification is described of the Navy camera control system-4 (NCCS-4) of the RF-8A aircraft to control the KA40A/45A/46A cameras in stations 3 and 4, which extends the aircraft photographic reconnaissance capability as accomplished under Amendment 118. The APEL designed and fabricated a prototype NCCS-4 camera control system modification kit and a prototype rotatable mount modi fication kit. Production quantities of the rotatable mount kit were fabricated by the APEL. Chicago Aerial Industries produced the NCCS-4 camera control system modification kit. The changes to the control system and the rotatable mount were found to be satisfactory. (Author)
