A Reconofax VI infrared IR mapping set was modified to operate in the 8- to 13-micron IR band, provided with a long-persistence-phosphor cathode- ray-tube B-scope display, installed in a VAP-61 RA-3B aircraft, and used over North Vietnam for road, waterway, and bridge reconnaissance. Real-time tactics were developed, and strikes were called against transient targets based on information provided by the inflight display.
