RPS Defense Flight Operations in Action

RPS Defense was the only operator entrusted to fly real-world operational missions with one of the most requested and sophisticated ISR wide-area surveillance sensing systems in the Department of Defense arsenal.

RPS Defense collected over 50,000 flight hours of special mission payload GEOINT, providing a tactical and strategic forensic capability unrivaled by any other DoD intelligence sensing system.

Our unique understanding of sensor capabilities was so profound that for over three years, RPS Defense was the sole contractor providing resident liaison officers in the Combined Air Operations Center, delivering on-site subject matter expertise to warfighting commanders and operators. Combined with RPS Defense’s all-source intelligence analysts, the full life-cycle of GEOINT is an expertise that only RPS Defense can deliver.
