The JU288 was once a medium bomber which first flew in June 1941. It got here out of the Luftwaffe's greatest improvement software of the battle. This used to be often called Bomber B and was once arrange to provide a brand new strategic bomber. a number of editions of the JU288 supplying diversified speeds, levels and bomb rather a lot have been envisaged, yet in simple terms 22 plane have been produced. the improvement venture which ended in the JU388 started in September 1943. This used to be to be a multi-purpose variety which can be used as a bomber, an evening fighter or a reconnaissance airplane. The evening fighter version had particular radar antennae at the nostril. the ultimate sort tested within the publication, the JU488, was once first proposed in early 1944. This was once for a four-engined heavy bomber. so that it will speed up the improvement application, elements from the JU88, 188 and 288 have been utilized in its development. prototypes have been assembled in France yet have been destroyed by means of the French resistance prior to they can be shipped to Germany for evaluate resulting in the abandonment of this system in November 1944.

2 Payloads A detailed discussion of payloads is not within the scope of this chapter; however, understanding the basic types of payloads in the context of various applications is important to the overall comprehension of how different missions are conducted. In this chapter’s context, payloads are divided into three categories: still imagers, full motion video, and other payloads. Applications tend to be most effectively completed using only one of the previous types, although some applications will use a combination of multiple payload types.

Cinematography and law-enforcement applications. However, in order to capture imagery at a sufficient rate, most FMV imagers are of significantly lower resolution than still imagers. Even 1080p “high definition” video only contains about 2 million pixels versus still imagery that might contain over 30 million pixels in each image, meaning that 1080p high definition video has only 1/15th the resolution of high quality still imagery. Similar to still imagery, FMV can be tagged with metadata describing the imagery.
