Raytheon Technologies unit Collins Aerospace has received an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) modification contract.
The contract has been awarded by the US Air Force (USAF) for its new Fast-Jet reconnaissance pod, dubbed ‘MS-110 Multispectral Airborne Reconnaissance system’.
According to Collins Aerospace, the newer MS-110 sensor is an advancement in airborne reconnaissance capability.
It provides next-generation capabilities that are claimed to be ‘unmatched’ by targeting pods or sensors equipped inside the aircraft body.
These capabilities include achieving high-resolution imagery at long / stand-off range in scenarios such as peacetime cross-border surveillance or high-threat wartime.
The MS-110 sensor also provides advanced multispectral imagery to detect targets with a higher degree of confidence or even in poor weather conditions.

Other capabilities include wide-area coverage in high resolution, flexible planning / re-tasking for real-time changes in dynamic operational situations by aircrew.
Furthermore, the sensor comes with SCi-Toolset, a software suite that helps end-users extract critical intelligence from the MS-110’s imagery.
Collins Aerospace ISR and Space Solutions vice-president and general manager Kevin Raftery said: “The combination of spatial and spectral resolution modalities provides customers with an exponential increase in intelligence gathering capabilities against challenging targets.”
Recently, Collins won a performance-based logistics (PBL) CH-47F Chinook avionics support contract.
