Abstract : The purpose of the report is to summarize the technical achievements of the Airborne Central Data Tape Recorder (ACDTR) Support Programs project. The ACDTR support programs were designed to test the utility of the Central Data Recorder in support of an image interpreter or photo analyst exploiting multi-sensor imagery. The report provides an analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of both the ACDTR magnetic tape and the computer programs which were written to process the data from this tape. Also included in the report are recommendations for utilization of the data from an ACDTR type system under field conditions. (Author)
