ScanEagle® System

The evolution of the revolution

The ScanEagle platform has redefined ISR services for Group 2, long-endurance UAS. Now, we’re introducing the aircraft’s dynamic evolution to an even more capable, reliable and cost-effective solution. Our latest ScanEagle features upgraded avionics, expanded payload options and a new heavy fuel purpose-built propulsion system that dramatically improves reliability and performance. Backed by the experience of more than 965,000 flight hours on land and at sea, the aircraft maximises commonality with Insitu systems, saving money on life-cycle costs and training.
