Abstract:

Infrared equipment, Aerial photography, Infrared scanning, Infrared detectors, Search radar, Radar recording cameras, Radar equipment, Automatic pilots, Gust loads, Airborne, Airframes, Mapping. Open-ended Terms ANUSD-4, ANUSD-5, AO-1. Progress is reported of an investigation of sensor stabilization for Army aircraft. The model for simulation of airframe control dynamics was adapted for analysis of the ANUSD4, ANUSD-5, and YAO-1 aircraft. A reference level of air turbulence was chosen and the responses of the ANUSD-5 and YAO-1 to the gust environment were simulated. The imaging characteristics of photographic, infrared, and radar sensors were examined and stabilization requirements were determined. Author
