Abstract:

This study investigated the utility and feasibility of combining imagery from several airborne sensors and data sources on a single real-time display. The baseline sensors and data sources considered for an advanced, high performance attack aircraft included radar, FLIR, TV, laser spot trackerdesignatorranger, warning receivers, a priori data cartography, targetthreat coordinates, reconnaissance imagery of target and data-linked targetthreat information. Several promising simultaneous data presentations were determined for use within the key phases of an interdiction mission. These were simulated by the superposition of static imagery and qualitatively evaluated. The mechanization complexity of implementing each display combination, as well as a highly flexible general system implementation, was examined. It was concluded that all of the key hardware elements required are presently available or in development. Many are already onboard or scheduled for incorporation in tactical aircraft and may be time-shared for the display of multisensor information. Author
