RTX’s Raytheon continues Middle East roll- of MS-110 advanced multi-spectral reconnaissance pod

Raytheon, an RTX business, has been awarded a major reconnaissance system upgrade contract for an air force customer in the Middle East region. This is the 12th nation in the Middle East and North Africa region to use Raytheon’s advanced multi-spectral reconnaissance pods.
 
The award, which will be contracted via U.S. Foreign Military Sales (FMS) channels, involves upgrading existing DB-110 Electric Optic/Infra Red pods designed for fast jet operations, including F-15 and F16, to the advanced MS-110 configuration and providing improved ground station exploitation features associated with the SCI-Toolset suite of software tools.
 
The MS-110 is an expansive upgrade to the highly successfully DB-110, which was first introduced in 2010. The MS-110 provides day and night, wide area, long-range imagery coverage in true color. It also enables a number of sophisticated techniques, including  camouflage defeat, near-real-time data link capability, and can image through natural and battlefield obscurants. 
 
As a full ‘end-to-end’ system, an MS-110 program includes sophisticated mission planning computers as well the company’s SCI-Toolset suite of ground station exploitation software.  An advanced ‘on-demand’ data link will be included which greatly increases the system’s utility for indications and warning missions during periods of escalating tensions or actual combat operations to automate and improve imagery analysis and reporting.
