1.     There is a growing need for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) and airborne support missions in maritime and remote regions where it is probable to experience adverse weather conditions, non-ideal landing areas, degraded GPS, and Anti-Access/Area Denial (A2AD) environments while requiring several hours of flight time over open seas. TSC’s Location, Identification and Flight Tracking System (LIFTS) and low cost MDA surveillance platform provide solutions to these needs. TSC’s MDA platform consists of ISR capable aircraft that have been deployed in various OCONUS regions and LIFTS is a RF sensor based pseudolite system used in providing Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) to aircraft in adverse operating environments. The utility of these systems with the cost effectivity of TSC’s MDA assets has been outstanding, and our teams have identified additional payloads and mission opportunities for this for deployment in high priority regions such as the western Pacific.
