MOBILE VERSATILE LIVE RECCE SYSTEM - FROM IDEA TO OPERATIONAL USE
Danish Air Force Home Guard (DAFHG), following the idea and presentations from Morten Hoyer-Nielsen,
Gunnar B. Pedersen and myself - with our own private equipment under primitive conditions, conducted a series of test flights
that led to the development of MVLRS Versatile Mobile Live Recce System
During a presentation of MVLRS for the Danish Parliamentary Defence Committee said Zenia Stampe (R):
Include on the bringing together civilian and military capabilities, "We've seen some fine examples of it today - for example in
the Danish Air Force Home Guard (DAFHG) - and the kind I could well imagine that there will be even more needed future "
Gunnar B. Pedersen and Morten Hoyer-Nielsen works with the academic part of MVLRS
