Collins Aerospace Brings Next-generation Sensors to FastJets


Reading time ( words)

Collins Aerospace, a unit of Raytheon Technologies Corp., 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-broader 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

“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.

The Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap for Aerospace and Defense

11/24/2020 | Jeff Demmin, Keysight Technologies
Most people in the semiconductor industry are familiar with the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS), which provided guidance for the industry starting in 1991 (as the National Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors). As the benefits of Moore’s Law became more difficult and more expensive to achieve, the organization decided to publish a final version in 2016. The baton was handed to the Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap (HIR), with the realization that heterogeneous integration—assembling different types of devices rather than monolithic fabrication—is an important enabler for continued progress in the semiconductor industry.
