Collins Aerospace wins contract to support MS-110 program

The Raytheon subsidiary has been tapped to provide sensor enhancements to the US Air Force’s MS-110 Multispectral Airborne Reconnaissance system.

The Raytheon subsidiary has been tapped to provide sensor enhancements to the US Air Force’s MS-110 Multispectral Airborne Reconnaissance system.

Collins Aerospace, a unit of Raytheon Technologies, has secured an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract modification by the US Air Force to support its MS-110 Multispectral Airborne Reconnaissance system.

The firm has been tasked with fitting the aircraft with a sensor suite designed to deliver the following capability enhancements: 

  • high-resolution imagery achievable at long/stand-off range for peacetime cross border surveillance or high-threat wartime scenarios;
  • advanced multispectral imagery (colour and false-colour 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; and
  • 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,” Kevin Raftery, vice president and general manager, ISR and space solutions for Collins Aerospace, said.
