BSI delivers MACE and Viper DIS Radios to the Air National Guard’s 107 Air Wing, Niagara Falls, New York for a MQ-9 Reaper simulation system in support of training for the Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA).  The MQ-9 has an aircrew that consists of a pilot, sensor operator and a mission intelligence coordinator.


The MQ-9 Reaper is an armed, multi-mission, medium-altitude, long-endurance remotely piloted aircraft that is employed primarily as an intelligence-collection asset and secondarily against dynamic execution targets. Given its significant loiter time, wide range of sensors, multi-mode communications suite, and precision weapons, it provides a unique capability to perform strike, coordination, and reconnaissance against high-value, fleeting and time-sensitive targets.
