A New Variant of MS-110 has been Tested, likely for Taiwan
The MS-110 enhances airborne reconnaissance mission capabilities by providing a more extended range and broader surveillance in contested and peacetime scenarios against peer and near-peer adversaries. The system’s imagery and multi-spectral capabilities detect targets even through poor weather/atmospheric conditions, which may be rapidly disseminated via high-bandwidth datalink and Collins’ ground intelligence-sharing architecture.
Collins Aerospace has deployed reconnaissance systems 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 is based on Collins Aerospace's proven multi-spectral imaging (MSI) expertise from the U-2's SYERS-2C and evolved from the highly successful DB-110 system.
