Collins Aerospace has efficiently accomplished the primary flight check of its latest Quick-Jet reconnaissance pod, the MS-110 Multispectral Airborne Reconnaissance system, on an F-16 for an undisclosed worldwide buyer. The check flight demonstrated plane integration, flightworthiness, and full-system efficiency throughout the demanding confines of tactical jet flight envelopes. The superior MS-110 significantly enhances airborne reconnaissance mission capabilities by offering an extended vary and wider space of surveillance in contested and peacetime eventualities in opposition to peer and near-peer adversaries.

“Correct and dependable intelligence that may be shared at a nationwide and coalition stage is vital to mission success within the Joint All Area Command and Management (JADC2) battlespace,” stated Lora Magliocco, director and normal supervisor, Airborne ISR Options for Collins Aerospace. “Efficiently finishing this trial demonstrates the readiness of the MS-110 methods to assist prospects across the globe.”

The system’s superior imagery and multispectral capabilities detect targets with the next diploma of confidence and could also be quickly disseminated through high-bandwidth datalink and Collins’ floor intelligence-sharing structure. Collins Aerospace reconnaissance methods have been fielded and are operational on tactical quick jet platforms such because the F-15 and F-16, in addition to particular mission ISR enterprise jets. The system can also be appropriate with MALE UAVs such because the MQ-9. The MS-110 sensor developed from the extremely profitable DB-110 system and leverages Collins Aerospace’s confirmed multi-spectral imaging (MSI) experience from SYERS-2C flown on the U-2.
