frared techniques are used to al-
low allied forces to actually fight
at night. The UH-1 helicopter and
other aircraft are equipped with
forward-looking infrared sensors
and low light-level televisions
that allow gunners and pilots to
see after sunset.
"The primary effort i: devoted
to the development of Sensors ..-.
with other aircraft subsystems
into a complete fire control wea-
pon delivery system," Gen. Otto
Glasser told the House Armed
Services Committee last year.
University researchers at Wil-
low Run did much of the early
work on actually building infra-
red devices, although the focus
is now on determining the infra-
red characteristics of military
targets and using infrared sens-
ing for some peaceful applica-
tions.

In its first two years, the Clas-
sified Research Committee ap-
proved 49 proposals for classified
infrared projects with a value of
$10.5 million.
Another major area where Uni-
versity researchers have aided in
the electronic battlefield is de-
veloping new radar techniques
to take reconnaisance photos and
to track moving targets from the
air.
Willow Run was largely re-
sponsible for the invention of a
synthetic aperture (or sidelook-
ing) radar that is able to make
detailed photograph-like radar
images 24 hours-a-day in all
weather.
"Synthetic aperture radar is
used for battlefield surveillance
and target detection and acquisi-
tion," according to the -omments
prepare.d by Pentagon research
director Foster.
The Phantom, besides carry-
ing infrared sensors, also use.;
synthetic aperture radar, allow-
ing the crew to photograph areas
miles to each side without actual-
ly flying over them.
"The aircraft has seen exten-
sive service in Southeast Asia,"
Gen. Glasser told the Armed
Services Committee. "The first
squadron became operational in
August, 1965."
Information about possible tar-
gets from the Phantoms and
other reconaissance llanes are
sent to fighter bomnbr or to the
artillery who strike at the car-
get. "Charlie never knew what
hit him or why," Harvey relates
in his book.
Another radar technique on

"Moving target indicator radar
is useful to assist in separa Iirg
active targets froin static objects
in the background," state tle
comments prepared by Foster.
"Such detection is pruticularly
useful in observing enemy move-
ments, concentrations and supply
lines."
Brown says that research at
Willow Run has had some influ-
ence on military radar devices,
adding that the P'tantom radar
is "much like the radar demon-
strated here."
Recent classified radar pro-
jects include Radar Techniques

borne Target Signature Study,

By JIM IRWIN
Gov. William Milliken, in a special message to the legis-
lature last Thursday, called for greatly reduced penalties for
violation of the state's marijuana laws and urged tougher ac-
tion against drinking drivers.
Under the new proposal, charges of possession of mari-
juana and distribution of it not for profit - both now felon-
ies - would be reduced to misdemeanors.

agreed to participate in will begin
tomorrow and continue through
next Tuesday.
In urging others to join the
fast, Warner _ and Young said,
"Outraged by the continuing
death and destruction inflicted on
Indo-China by American power,
we find it unconscionable that
our University is still host to mil-
itary-sponsored activities serving
the American war machine."
The University presently con-
ducts $5.6 million worth of classi-
fied research and $10.4 million
worth of research, both classified
and unclassified; for the Depart-
ment of Defense.
During the week, those who are
fasting will meet daily in the Fish-
bowl to discuss the issue.
Commenting on the fast dentist-
ry Prof. Gerald Charbeneau, chair-
man of the Classified Research
Committee called it "an attempt
to tie a set of emotions to an issue
which should be looked at with
clear thinking."
"People are trying to tie the
Vietnamese war and classified re-
search together when they are
not the same issues," Charbeneau
said last night.
The controversy over classified
research was aroused last month
after the publication of a letter by
Michael 'Knox, a student member
of the Classified Research Com-
mittee, criticizing such research
and asking for permission to speak
at next week's meeting. Knox is
expected to present a critical mi-
nority report on the committee's
activities.
Following Knox' letter, social
work Prof. Roger Lind, vice chair-
man of Senate Assembly, called
for an end to classified research at
the University.
