DENVER (BNS): US Air Force has received an airborne signals intelligence system configured specifically for the newest C-130J aircraft delivered by the Lockheed Martin.

The system, which is part of the Senior Scout programme that enables C-130 aircraft to be used for tactical signals intelligence and reconnaissance, will undergo acceptance testing in December.

"The latest shelter configuration advances the Senior Scout capability for the next generation of C-130J aircraft," Jim Quinn, vice president of C4ISR Systems for Lockheed Martin IS&GS-Defense said in the company statement.

Senior Scout is an intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) system built into a trailer-like container that can be rolled on and off C-130 aircraft.

This ISR suite of equipment rapidly configures standard C-130 aircraft for tactical signals intelligence, providing capabilities that exploit, geo-locate and report communications intelligence and signals of interest to air and ground component commanders, the release added.

In addition, the latest Senior Scout shelter was enhanced to be structurally compatible with the newest C-130J aircraft.

System interfaces were updated, and the shelter was equipped with the latest technology enhancements and improvements for maintenance access.
