MFSM Volume 1- Operator's Manual        CIA-M-22543/B               July 4,1986



This section describes only the functional aspects of the MFSM. Refer to
Maintenance Manual - VOLUME 2 for the accompanying Section 3 - Theory Of
Operation. Figure 2-1 presents an overall functinal block diagram of the
MFSM major subsystems. () numbers in the following text correspond to the
circled numbers in figure 2-1.


The SELCT pushbutton ,(1) ,is part of the system control circuit (not
shown). The pushbutton operates a switch which selects one of four display
screens. The screen selected is active for programming until the SELCT
pushbutton is pressed again. Only one monitor may be selected for programming
at any time. Then the next screen in a left-to-right and top-to-bottom sequence
is activated. The VHOLD pushbutton ,(10) ,allows vertical synch of an active
screen to be corrected.


The MFSM is patched into the target site's security system. The MON pushbutton,
(2), allows a remote operator to view what the site monitor operators see as
they scan their system. Because most installations utilize a dual monitor
system, the MFSM monitor circuits can be switched beetween two separate signals
(3), by either pressing the MON pushbutton again or pressing the +/- pushbutton
while in the monitor mode.


Surveillance camera video signals can be overidden with images from the MFSM
Video Tape Recorder subsystem. A bypass switch,(4) ,allows the target site's
currently active surveillance camera signal to be substituted with a recorded
video signal. The video tape recorder is activated with the VTR button. (5)
The VTR is actually a solid-state device which degitizes video signals on up
to 38 separate channels and stores them in a virtual memory. The internal
bubble memory has a 5 gigabyte capacity which is refreshed every 24 hours.
Operation is identical to that of an analog VTR, and the controls associated
with the subsystem are also similar.


The telemetry guidance system,(7) ,functions as follows:

1) it provides a passive synthetic aperture radar display of all objects
   within an immediate range of 5 square miles
2) it integrates outputs from a motion detector, the target site digital
   traffic, and feedback from MRUs.

Thus on one monitor a remote operator can simultaneously view a floor plan
rendering of the target site, the present location of an MRU, the motion
of site security personnel, and a representation of which surveillance cameras
are active within the display parameters. Although the maximum range of the
TGS is 5 square yards at a time. The TGS is automatically linked to the
movement of any active MRU, which then causes the display to be scrolled in
accordance with the MRU location.


MRUs can be activated by pressing the MRU pushbutton,(8) ,or any of the motion
control pushbuttons. It is recommended that the TGS is used in conjonction
with this operation, since MRU models compatible with most MFSM models do not
presently feature an internal camera.


The output of target site surveillance cameras can be individually viewed.
Pressing the CAM pushbutton,(9) ,intercepts the 'live' camera for the
corresponding channel selected.

Backpanel connectors are hardwired on site. All cables and connectors terminate
in special adaptors that interface with the target site terminals. Figure 3-5
shows connectors on the backpanel of the MFSM.

3.3.1 Video Inputs/Outputs

Camera inputs are taken directly from taps of a remote site's video control
center. Up to 38 channels are provided. The MFSM solid-state recorder bypass
output connectors (labelled MON OUTPUTS) are patched back into the remote site
switching unit. Bias and phasing mismatches are automatically compensated for.
A synch signal from the MFSM control microprocessor is included with every VTR
output to allow for precise synchronization with the target system's timing

3.3.2 Audio Inputs/Outputs

Although the BNC connectors for monitor inputs also carry audio signals, the
MFSM is equipped with 10 RCA-type stereo input and output jacks. These are
used for ancillary bugging purposes. These jacks can also be interfaced with
the Digital Audio Synthesizing Unit (DASU), Part # CIA-UYA-007/9, for special
highly sophisticated jamming and audio alteration purposes.

3.3.3 Data Acquisition Connectors

GPIB and RS-232C connectors form the lower part of the backplane panel. The
target site's digital traffic is routed through these connectors.
In addition, serial-to-parallel probes, signature analyzers, serial interface
probes, trace modules, remote control devices, etc. can be connected to these
ports. See the companion MFSM Maintenance Manual-Volume 2 for detais  on


pushbutton is activated by pressing the switch on top of the mouse once.
When a pushbutton has been pressed, the finger of the cursor changes to a down 
position, and the lettering on the button is highlighted with color to indicate
the active status. Depending on the pushbutton pressed(and the function in
operation) the highlight may be momentary, it may continue as long as the
button is  held down, or it may stay on until the  pushbutton is pressed a
second time.


To select a display, press the SELCT pushbutton. The channel indicator for the
next display in a left to right, top-to- bottom order will immediately flash.
The channel number is changed by pressing the + or - pushbuttons.


Sometimes the vertical hold must be adjusted on a display. To do this follow
the procedure :

1. Press SELCT pushbutton to select the    desired display.
2. On systems equipped with a joystick :
* Move the hand cursor to the VHOLD push  button

* Press and hold the joystick control bu  tton

* The VHOLD is highlighted

* While still pressing the joystick cont  rol button, move the column forward
to  control the rate of bottom-to-top vert  ical roll, and back to control the 
    rate of top-to-bottom roll.

3. On systems equipped with a mouse, follow this procedure :

* Press and hold the VHOLD pushbutton

* The VHOLD is highlighted

* Press the + or - button to control the  rate of the vertical roll

* Press the VHOLD pushbutton again


The MFSM monitoring, VTR, Bypass, and TGS/MRU functions provide extremely
powerful and flexible capabilities for sophisticated real time remote covert
activities. In the MON code, an operator may viewa site's internal monitoring
system. In CAM mode, the operator may also view    individual cameras
independant of it's   monitoring system. The VTR mode allows for playback and
analysis of all the site's recorded activities. The BYP mode enables an
operator to intercept an internal monitoring system and substitute its current
channel with a taped image corresponding to the same channel. Finally, The TGS
and MRU modes provide information concerning the relative displacement and
disposition of hostile counterintelligence forces, and allows command and
control over friendly intelligence elements. Sucessful use of the MSFM,
therefore? depends on the ability of the operator to manipulate all the
resources available to carry out the desired mission.

4.4.1 Monitoring

Monitoring takes place in two modes:viewing of a remote site internal video
security monitoring circuits, and viewing    elements of those circuits
independent  of the site central control. Viewing Security Monitors

To gain access to internal security monitors, perform the following procedure :

1. Select the desired display monitor on   the MFSM
2. Press the MON pushbutton
3. The default monitor circuit is "A".     Verify that the monitor status
displa   y indicates :
   "SECURITY MON A (or B)"
4. To change the current monitor, press    the MON pushbutton
5. Verify that the monitor status displa   y indicates the alternate monitor   
   circuit. Viewing Independent Cameras

Individual cameras at the site can be isolated for viewing.To view a separate  
camera, the appropriate channel for that camera must be actived. Do this :

1. Select the desired display monitor on   the MFSM.
2. Press the CAM pushbutton.
3. Verify that the monitor status display indicates "LIVE"
4. Press the + pushbutton to increment     channels and the - pushbutton to    
   decrement channels.

4.4.2 Video Tape Recorder Operation

The Video Tape Recorder mode of operation is useful for display and analysis of
pre-recorded activity. Recording is continuously automatic, so there are no
provisions for recording an independent event, as with a standard VTR. When a
channel is set for display, the taped material is transferred from a special
 When a diplay on the MFSM has been selected and the VTR pushbutton had been
pressed, the VTR will then function in a manner similar to normal analog
devices.  See section 3 for an explanation of pushbutton functions associated
with the VTR. The display status indicates "TAPE"    when the VTR is active. To
change the current tape channel number, press either the + or - pushbutton.

 The synch signal that is recorded with the original image is automatically
shown during playback. That signal is present on the bottom part of the screen
as numbers that correspond to the minute and second of one hour period. Shuttle
search is possible by pressing the PLAY pushbutton and then pressing the >> or
<< buttons. A speeded image of the recorded   material will be shown, along
with synch numbers at bottom.

4.4.3 Bypass

The bypass mode allows the recorded image from a VTR channel to replace its
corresponding surveillance camera. To perform a monitor bypass, do the
following    procedure:
1. Use one of the MFSM displays to show    the VTR screen
2. Select the VTR channel to be bypassed   (using + or - pushbutton)
3. If necessary, advance or rewind the V   TR until the time synch values match
   those shown on a real time display.
4. Press the PLAY button on the VTR
5. Press BYP to bypass the surveillance    camera signal with tape
6. Verify that the monitor status          display indicates "BYPASS CAMERA".

To disable the bypass, do the following:
1. Select MFSM display showingthe bypassed camera

2. Press the BYP button to return to normal VTR function.



4.4.4 TGS and MRU modes

When the Telemetry Guidance System screen is persent on any of the MFSM
displays all pertinent information regarding active cameras, site personnel
placement,  navigationnal information, and MRU location is provided.To dispay
the TGS screen:
1. Select the desired display monitor on the MFSM.
2. Press the TGS pushbutton.
3. Verify that the monitor status display indicates"TGS-_______".The current
direction of the MRU is shown in the space after the dash.

Since location of an active MRU can alsobe shown relative to its surroundings,
it is best to control the MRU in conjunction with the TGS display. Figure 4.1
is an explanation of the symbols used on   the TGS screen. Controlling MRU Movement

To control an MRU displayed on the TGS, do the following :

1. On systems equipped with a joystick :
a) Move the hand cursor to the MRU pushbutton.
b) Press and release the joystick contro button.
c) The MRU button is highlighted.
d) Move the column forward to move the MRU forward, and back to move the MRU
e) Move the column to the left to turn the MRU to the left, and to the right to
turn the MRU to the right.
f) Note that the TGS status display indicates the direction (EAST,WEST,NORTH,or
SOUTH) the MRU is facing.
g) Centering the control column stops the MRU in its current position.
h) Press the MRU button again to release the MRU function.
i) Verify that the MRU button is no longer highlighted.

On systems equipped with a mouse:
a) Press and hold the F button to move the MRU forward, and B button to move
theMRU backwards.
b) Press and hold the L button ti turn the MRU to the left, and the R button to
turn the MRU to the right.
c) Note that the monitor status display indicates the
direction(EAST,WEST,NORTH,or SOUTH) the MRU is facing.
