Three experimental infrared mapping systems, the U.S. Air Force Reconofax IX, U.S. Army ANAAS-10XE-1, and the U.S. Navy Reconofax VI, were flight-tested simultaneously on RA-3B aircraft, BuNo. 144839. Control ground targets and targets of opportunity were used. The three systems met their respective primary design specifications, but each system has shortcomings that need to be improved before service use. Recommendations are included for further development of infrared mapping systems.
