Default F-101 IR Target Seeker Head.

Anyone need an IR target seeker head from a Voodoo for your collection?
;-) Stumbled across this on the web! Just what every military enthusiast
needs, eh!

Infrared Receiver P/N 463767-110, FSN 12709541589
$ 600.00 US Please visit: www.torontosurplus.com for further details.
This unit was used on the F-101 Voodoo aircraft as part of their aircraft
fire control system when firing missiles at enemy aircraft. It has a
thermally cooled detector inside and two rate gyros on a gimbled platform.
If you strip this unit down it makes a nice gyro stabilized platform for
standard cameras. No electronics is inside the unit other than a
pre-amplifier for the detector assembly.
The globe that you see on the outside is 1/4" thick germanium and is quite
expensive.
There are other germanium filters inside as well as some optics.
$ 600.00 US

SNIP: I don't have 600 bucks for that jewel but if you need an infra red search and track system it's a good one. You do need a liquid nitrogen source to cool it down and increase the sensitivity. Or you could just set it out in the garden as a small 'gaze ball'.

I know all about this system. Worked on the CF101 Voodoo for several
years and retired the darned thing at CFB Comox. This was part of the
MG13IIP system.

And it's been nothing but downhill for the RCAF ever since....

You sure have that right Mike. There is an election in the air and all
kinds of promises are being made for new spending. Note, I said "PROMISES"!
I'll believe it when I see it! The newest procurement has been two luxury
Challenger jets used as taxies by the politicians. Just shows you where
their priorities lie! Most of the air fleet needs replacement and
up-grading. The Herc C-130, the Aurora, the Buffalo, the Sea King, CF-18.
We are replacing SAR choppers with the Cormorant but from what I read in the
papers they are having teething problems. The Army and the Navy are even in
worse shape.
It's going to cost BIG bucks and many years to do this if Canada wants to
maintain an effective, even a small military. At least there is some public
support out there after many years of indifference! Sure glad I'm retired.

Just an add on Mike.

End of WWII - ~1 million in uniform - population approx 12 million
1958 - RCAF around 51,000 - total three services around 110,000 -
population ~20 million.
1966 - Amalgamation of the three services into the CAF!

Today - Canadian Forces - between 50-58,000 estimated
- population around 33 million.

Good thing we are under the US umbrella! It's time we held up our end!

Or started paying US taxes under protectorate status.

Canadians have "free healthcare" @ $1500 a month instead.

Heathcare is far from free! Just check our income tax rates. At least
in Canada everyones in the same boat and is covered. Your not turned away
at the door if you don't have a healthy bank account or credit card. You
won't get any support in Canada if you try and tamper with our medicare
system. We spend less per capita on Medicare than you do in the USA under
your system. Anyway, this doesn't have much to do with a military aviation
newsgroup, does it!

If a Canadian has a healthy bank account or credit card they drive South,
much like Canada's college graduates.

Health care is already rationed in Canada, we won't have to do more than
point out the holes in the system to keep it out of the US. When AIDS his
Canada hard the
"managers" of the "free healthcare" system decided to ration breast cancer
treatment to pay for it. If a Canadian woman went without treatment for 6
months she could get a bus ticket to Vermont and care. After the
statistical evidence was there to prove Canada was letting women die some
additional funding was found, but healthcare is not a selling point for
Canadian society anymore.

Actually, I can get full coverage for a family of 6 for less than $500 and a
$2000 deductable. I would pay three times that as a Canadian, except for
the deductable. Too bad for me if my family's illness is not politically
correct in Canada that year.
