L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) is introducing a new technology solution to enhance ISR capability to aircraft previously only available through major airplane modifications. RASISR™ (Rapid, Adaptable, Smart, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) is the new universal signals intelligence (SIGINT) pod.
RASISR is the only pod with the capacity to host L3Harris’ full-spectrum SIGINT capability and other high-performance sensors for multiple platform types including high-speed aircraft and business jets. The new pod also enables increased ISR capacity and agility by adding sensor capability to non-ISR platforms such as transport, tanker and maritime aircraft.
“We designed RASISR to accommodate a range of sensors and payloads,” said Bill Irby, President, Reconnaissance Mission Systems, L3Harris. “We’re pleased to offer this solution that can be swapped between aircraft platforms, while also providing a low-cost, low-risk means to provide additional sensors and field capabilities to keep pace with requirements.”
The RASISR pod hosts a full-spectrum signals intelligence capability including communications intelligence, electronic intelligence and special signals. These capabilities perform in both strategic and tactical missions. L3Harris, a leading provider of ISR solutions, is leveraging decades of investment in SIGINT technologies.
The RASISR pod is proven within SIGINT applications in which the payload has been tested on unmanned aircraft systems.
