ScanEagle2® 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 1 million flight hours on land and at sea, the aircraft maximises commonality with Insitu systems, saving money on life-cycle costs and training.
