L3Harris Technologies has been awarded a US Army Foreign Military Sales contract to modify three KING AIR 350ER aircraft for the Canadian manned airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (CMAISR) programme.
The project will provide Canada with a rapidly deployable, airborne ISR capability, ensuring an innovative, flexible and interoperable force. The aircraft will feature a suite of L3Harris systems, including full-motion video sensors, a mission management system and communication datalinks. The capability upgrades offer increased threat indications and warning, as well as high-accuracy target detection and location.
“Our […] team is ready to combine our ISR, missionization and modification solutions to deliver a system that will enhance the capabilities and security of Canada and its allies,” observed Sean Stackley, President, Integrated Mission Systems. “L3Harris has the distinction of successfully delivering more certified, special mission KING AIRs on-time and on-budget than any other contractor in the world, and we look forward to maintaining that tradition.”
