The Triton recently demonstrated its ability to share the video with the navy’s P-8A Poseidon, as both platforms were airborne and far away from each other. The Air Forces’ Block 30 Global Hawk was also updated, to carry new mission payloads.

Goodrich to Upgrade U-2 Mission Payload With Multi-Spectral Sensors

U-2 in Sowthwest Asia
Goodrich Corp. is upgrading the two Senior Year Electro-Optical Reconnaissance Sensors (SYERS) currently used on U.S. Air Force Lockheed Martin U-2 'Dragon Lady' platforms operated by the 9th Reconnaissance Wing. Multi-spectral sensors capture images at specific frequencies across the electromagnetic spectrum. Enhanced images provided by the payload are used for targeting, threat analysis, and situational assessment, by evaluating changes in images taken in different times, showing differences not readily apparent to the human eye.
