ScanEagle®3 System

More payload. Long endurance. Increased flexibility.

An innovative design that doubles the payload capacity of previous ScanEagle blocks without compromising endurance, increases your operational flexibility by accommodating multiple payloads simultaneously, letting you collect and analyse more data in a single flight. The aircraft is free of International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) in its baseline configuration, and engineered to deliver superior performance in defence operations.
