Intelligence Surveillance Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR)
Multi-intelligence is the first line of defense
Collins Aerospace’s ISTAR is a multi-intelligence aircraft that uses artificial intelligence, integrated onboard sensors and advanced processing to provide critical information to military and civilian air and ground crews.
Our integrated suite of ISR solutions provide state-of-the-art capabilities for national defense missions.
The ISTAR aircraft helps crews:
Track mobile ground targets
Map natural disaster areas
Monitor vessels to enforce maritime embargos
Monitor activities near borders and littoral areas
Collins Aerospace is the first company to deploy an international ISTAR-type aircraft through the United Kingdom’s Sentinel program. The Sentinel aircraft and ground stations operated by the Royal Air Forces 5th and 54th squadrons have been in use since 2007.
