fixed-wing UAV / civilian
The ScanEagle, manufactured by Insitu, offers agility and is virtually undetectable. It delivers persistent imagery on land or at sea at a fraction of the cost of other surveillance methods. It features a combat-proven and cost effective design. It offers low acoustic, visual, and infrared range signature, an advanced muffler, a modular design, low personnel requirements and 24-hour endurance. Its heavy fuel engine minimizes shipboard logistics and enhances aircraft performance. Inertially stabilized electro-optic or infrared imagers can automatically follow fixed and moving objects for extended periods.
