Airborne Reconnaissance

Airborne reconnaissance platforms such as the MC-12 Project Liberty and the RC-135 RIVET JOINT provide national decision makers and battlefield commanders with critical intelligence in support of diverse demands ranging from securing our national interests to the protection of US and Allied Forces in distant theaters of operation.  Riverside Research provides highly skilled engineering, management, logistics, acquisition, and administrative support to ensure maximum operational responsiveness and flexibility for missions requiring rapid upgrades to existing platforms such as these. In addition, we are proud to support critical new intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) programs such as Gorgon Stare, Blue Devil, ACES-Hy, and SPIRITT. These improved ISR payloads for the MQ-1, MQ-9, and U2 programs will provide persistent, integrated, multi-source wide-area tactical battlefield surveillance to help respond to the growing demand for high-resolution motion video and timely signals intelligence.
