Insitu Inc. announced today that the U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) has awarded the company a Mid-Endurance Unmanned Aircraft Systems (MEUAS) Intelligence Gathering, Target Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) Services contract for 26 months through Feb. 28, 2015.
“Insitu is honored to continue providing ISR services to the warfighter,” said Insitu Senior Vice President of ScanEagle Programs Curt Chesnutt. “For the past three and a half years we have provided SOCOM agile and responsive and uninterrupted services with our ScanEagle system and we look forward to continuing our valued relationship.”
Under the contract, Insitu will introduce several technologies that will significantly increase the capability of the warfigher.
Insitu’s ScanEagle is a runway-independent unmanned aircraft system (UAS) with a small-operational footprint that allows Special Operations forces to capture superior image quality.
