The problem of detecting wire obstacles constitutes a limiting factor in nighttime nap-of-the-earth helicopter operations. Several approaches to a solution for the problem are indicated and a detailed examination of the utilization of a Gated Low Light Level TV GL3TV is presented. The results of a limited pragmatic test program designed to explore the feasibility of this technique for wire obstacle detection are given. These results indicate that the technique is applicable to the problem provided means can be found to implement automatic acquisition and pattern recognition within a realistic cost.
