Collins Aerospace Completes First Flight Of MS-110 Multispectral Airborne Reconnaissance System

Collins Aerospace has successfully completed the first flight test of its newest Fast-Jet reconnaissance pod, the MS-110 Multispectral Airborne Reconnaissance system, on an F-16 for an undisclosed international customer. The test flight demonstrated aircraft integration, flightworthiness, and full-system performance within the demanding confines of tactical jet flight envelopes.

The advanced MS-110 greatly enhances airborne reconnaissance mission capabilities by providing a longer range and wider area of surveillance in contested and peacetime scenarios against peer and near-peer adversaries.

“Accurate and reliable intelligence that can be shared at a national and coalition level is critical to mission success in the Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2) battlespace,” said Lora Magliocco, director and general manager, Airborne ISR Solutions for Collins Aerospace. “Successfully completing this trial demonstrates the readiness of the MS-110 systems to support customers around the globe.”

The system’s advanced imagery and multispectral capabilities detect targets with a higher degree of confidence and may be rapidly disseminated via high-bandwidth datalink and Collins’ ground intelligence-sharing architecture.

Collins Aerospace reconnaissance systems have been fielded and are operational on tactical fast jet platforms such as the F-15 and F-16, as well as special mission ISR business jets. The system is also compatible with MALE UAVs such as the MQ-9. The MS-110 sensor evolved from the highly successful DB-110 system and leverages Collins Aerospace’s proven multi-spectral imaging (MSI) expertise from SYERS-2C flown on the U-2.

Collins Aerospace, a Raytheon Technologies subsidiary, is one of the world’s largest suppliers of aerospace and defense products, headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, United States. Collins Aerospace is engaged in designing, manufacturing and servicing systems and components for commercial aviation, business aviation, military and defense, helicopters, space, airports, and other industries.

Collins Aerospace has six strategic business units: Aerostructures, Avionics, Interiors, Mechanical Systems, Missions Systems, and Power & Controls. In 2020 United Technologies merged with Raytheon Company to form Raytheon Technologies.
