Paper Abstract

The Standoff Intelligence Detection (SID) program is an Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) quick reaction program, tasked with providing the warfighter ready-now technologies related to directed energy, optics, and photonics. The first variant of these aircraft was started in 2008 utilizing two Cessna 182Q aircraft retrofitted with a wing mounted imaging systems and mission equipment. The 3rd generation of these imaging aircraft is equipped on a Cessna T-206H, Turbo Stationair. The aircraft is a 6-seat, single-engine aircraft, retrofitted with an MX-15HDi sensor system and supporting equipment.

The SID Program has produced the aircraft to provide an ISR platform to support tests, exercises, search and rescue, and real-world needs.
