ScanEagle, a long-endurance, fully autonomous unmanned aircraft system (UAS) developed by Boeing Company subsidiary Insitu, has successfully completed a ship-based trial with the Republic of Singapore Navy early this month.

Insitu was first involved with long endurance Unmanned Aircraft to measure atmospheric conditions and do reconnaissance in remote areas for meteorology, daily weather prediction and climate modeling. Insitu began working with Boeing in 2001 to develop an ISR-focused Unmanned Aircraft System dubbed ‘ScanEagle.’

This technology is already in use by the US Navy, the US Marines and the Australian Army. Stats for Pilotless Aircraft Trending: Older & Average
