surveillance and reconnaissance Insitu ScanEagle combat proven Unmanned
is a pioneer in the design, development, production and operation of
high-performance, cost-effective unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) for
intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR). Insitu UAS deliver
invaluable assistance to defense, scientific, conservation and emergency
response organizations worldwide.
The Insitu ScanEagle is a small, low-cost, long-endurance unmanned aerial
vehicle (UAV) built by Insitu, a subsidiary of Boeing.
Insitu family of unmanned aircraft includes ScanEagle® developed
in partnership with The Boeing Company and Integrator™, which
provides advanced plug-and-play payload interfaces that extend your
operational capability. Both aircraft are retrieved by Insitu’s
patented SkyHook® system, distinguished by its small-footprint design
that eliminates the need for runways and associated hardware.
Insitu systems are proven through more than 729,550 combat flight hours,
and operate over land and at sea in both civilian and defense operations.
Practical applications of our technology include military reconnaissance,
the creation of communication networks in remote or devastated areas,
border patrol, coastal monitoring, anti-sniper efforts, environmental
monitoring, search and rescue, disaster relief and other missions that
are too tedious or dangerous for human pilots.
ScanEagle® unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) are a product of Insitu,
a wholly owned subsidiary of The Boeing Company. ScanEagle is a cost-effective,
long-endurance autonomous UAS that provides persistent daytime and nighttime
intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) for a variety of
government and civilian applications. The aircraft is launched autonomously
via a catapult launcher, and the system’s patented no-nets, runway-independent
retrieval solution, SkyHook®, catches the aircraft by its wing tip
with a rope that hangs from a 50-foot-high boom. ScanEagle can remain
covert and on station for 18-plus hours.
Agile, virtually undetectable and on station until the job is done,
hardworking ScanEagle delivers persistent imagery on land or at sea
at a fraction of the cost of other surveillance methods. The aircraft’s
superior live video feeds keep you one step ahead of the situation,
whether your mission is agricultural assessment or force protection.
And because no nets or runway are required, you can keep your footprint
small, even when the stakes are big.
