As the ISR landscape aggressively changes, the defense industry’s response is limited without effective peer-near-peer (PNP), inter-theater quick reaction ISR capabilities to support long-range precision fire needs.

The Future of Aerial ISR

SNC is invested in building a safer tomorrow through an unparalleled airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (AISR) offering. SNC’s new AISR jet capability, RAPCON-X, is built with a current production, commercial derivative aircraft (CDA) and offers high reliability, superior range, endurance and an operational envelope that enhances survivability and the ability to operate in peer-to-peer and near-peer environments.

Designed with the future in mind, today – RAPCON-X is born digital.

Its modular design was created using Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE), significantly reducing the time required to integrate new systems and add new capabilities. It can be easily reconfigured for specific mission purpose without aircraft redesign. Intended for worldwide operations, RAPCON-X is engineered ready for ASE installation.



Operating Mission Altitude >45,000 ft MSL
Mission Endurance Time >14 Hours
Ferry Range >6000 NM
Fully Modernized Avionics GATM/NextGen 2020
MGW T/O Distance 6500 ft
Landing Distance 2300 ft

The RAPCON-X open architecture design eliminates OEM and vendor lock, allowing for best-of-breed mission equipment, including some of SNC’s most innovative products, SNC TRAX® software, the Next-Generation Mission System and signal intelligence (SIGINT) products for multi-domain operations.

RAPCON-X capabilities such as turnkey, contractor-owned, contractor-operated (COCO) services include aircraft, flight operations, maintenance operations and logistics support.
