Insitu, a subsidiary of Boeing, officially revealed for the first time the latest addition to its family of unmanned aircraft systems (UASs), which as a commercial platform is not covered by US International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).
According to Insitu, the UAS addresses important demands from the company’s customers, whose focus is on significantly higher payload, ability to carry multiple payloads simultaneously, and long endurance. In fact, the ScanEagle 3 features double the payload of Insitu’s other UAS, the ScanEagle; it can carry up to three payloads simultaneously; and can undertake long-range missions, a feature that is likely to be of interest in defence applications.
