USAF selects UTC Aerospace Systems to upgrade the SYERS-2 imaging sensor fleet

UTC Aerospace Systems was awarded a contract by the United States Air Force to upgrade the entire fleet of SYERS-2 imaging sensors to the latest SYERS-2C variant.  UTC Aerospace Systems is a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

The upgrade to the SYERS-2C configuration features the latest in multi-spectral technology and increases the spectral resolution and image interpretability beyond that of the baseline system - which already provides the longest range on the National Imagery Interpretability Rating Scale (NIIRS) - further extending the NIIRS range of the Department of Defense (DoD) Airborne intelligence surveillance reconnaissance (ISR) inventory.

"Working with both the US Air Force and the US Navy to meet an urgent requirement, UTC Aerospace Systems was able to re-configure our highest performing operational system quickly," said Kevin Raftery, Vice President, UTC Aerospace Systems. "This SYERS variant brings unique capabilities, particularly advantageous to joint operations in the air/sea battle domain. The initial SYERS-2C system has just completed its initial operational capability phase and is now  supporting the full COCOM ISR requirements. We are pleased to be contracted to deliver this advanced solution to the entire fleet."
