Bringing next-generation sensors to FastJets

Collins Aerospace’s MS-110 sensor features multi-spectral technology, significantly increasing intelligence capabilities and improving imagery in poor visibility

Retrofit kits available to convert Dual-Band, DB-110 sensors to multi-spectral variants

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (March 9, 2021) – Collins Aerospace, a unit of Raytheon Technologies Corp. (NYSE: RTX), was awarded an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract modification by the US Air Force for its newest FastJet reconnaissance pod, the MS-110 Multispectral Airborne Reconnaissance system.

The newer MS-110 is a step-change advancement in Airborne Reconnaissance capability and provides capabilities that are unmatched by targeting pods or sensors internally fitted inside the aircraft body. These capabilities include:

  • Highest resolution imagery achievable at long/stand-off range for peacetime cross-boarder surveillance or high-threat wartime scenarios
  • Advanced multispectral imagery (color and false-color composites) to detect targets with a higher degree of confidence or through poor weather/atmospheric conditions
  • Wide-area coverage in high resolution
  • Flexible planning/re-tasking for real-time changes in dynamic operational situations by aircrew

SCi-Toolset, a suite of software to help End Users extract critical intelligence from the MS-110’s imagery

“The combination of spatial and spectral resolution modalities provides customers with an exponential increase in intelligence gathering capabilities against challenging targets,” said Kevin Raftery, vice president and general manager, ISR and Space Solutions for Collins Aerospace.
