find camouflaged vehicles around a landing area. Imaging of some degree of soil trafficability can also be performed with the aid of the near-infrared band, thus providing information to support an actual landing.
When these capabilities are combined with near-real-time tasking and data receipt capabilities, the DOD is a transportable ground terminal away from having access to a high-resolution imaging system directly in the field or aboard a ship. This capability would provide long-sought-after information timeliness to the warfighter.
