Insitu ScanEagle

Insitu Inc., in collaboration with Boeing, ING Engineering and the Canadian Forces, today announced that it has donated a ScanEagle unmanned aircraft to the Canada Aviation and Space Museum. Marking the significance of Canada’s participation in the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan, the contribution coincides with the commemoration of the 25,000 combat flight hours that Insitu systems have flown in support of the Canadian Forces.

ScanEagle production aircraft #687 flew 2,000 flight hours supporting the missions of Canadian and allied forces before it was retired in April, 2010. Partners will celebrate the contributions of this aircraft during a ceremony and reception at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum.
