Speed, Accuracy and Efficiency Converting Data to Actionable Intelligence
The ISR Systems business of UTC Aerospace has contributed to significant advances in ground, air, space and imaging technology for over 85 years. ISR Systems has a significant and growing presence in global defense programs and is dedicated to serving Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) needs in space, air and ground environments.
“For 50 years we have been a global leader for long range airborne reconnaissance and currently our products remain the most advanced sensor systems in the US DoD inventory. We strive to make every customer successful by utilizing advanced technology for high, medium and low altitude applications,” said Kevin Rafferty, vice president and general manager airborne systems. “We are proud to support our warfighters and domestic first responders on a daily basis and each day we go home with the satisfaction we made a difference.”
UTC Aerospace Systems is a pioneer in modern reconnaissance, with the design and manufacture of cameras for the world’s first photo-reconnaissance satellite - CORONA.
This legacy continues today within airborne reconnaissance. UTC Aerospace System sensors have supported strategic intelligence collection on the U-2 platform from its inception to today. UTC Aerospace System’s SYERS-2 multi-spectral sensor is the US Air Force’s most advanced real-time LOROP sensor.
UTC Aerospace System’s DB-110 dual-band airborne reconnaissance sensor, a derivative of the SYERS system, combines visible and infrared imaging capabilities in a compact, lightweight design. This system has proven its performance day and night operationally and in demonstrations worldwide on both manned and unmanned platforms.
