Decision-making superiority delivered

Insitu is a pioneer leader in the design, development, production and operation of high-performance, cost-effective unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). Our focus is to deliver our global customer base with the highest-quality ISR information, as quickly as possible. Our family of long-endurance, runway-independent UAS have logged hundreds of thousands of combat flight hours since 2004, and we have successfully operated in some of the most extreme environments in the world.

Agility, precision and endurance are the core of Insitu. Our people and our equipment are in-theater now, adapting to whatever mission comes our way. Our aircraft are modular, allowing upgrades as technology advances, and are launched with 99 percent mission-readiness. We have the highest standards for the ISR solutions we deliver to our customers. Our systems are crisper, clearer and brighter than any other — and always point at the exact spots our customers need. We are on station for as long as it takes to get the job done — from design to delivery, to being in the field and in the air.

To meet new operational needs and address the global market, we have introduced scores of game-changing technology that have dramatically improved imagery and exploitation, operational security, training, airspace safety, reliability, maintainability and availability.

We maintain a strong network of partners, allowing us to provide specialized in-country support for any region in the world. This includes Insitu Pacific, our Australia-based affiliate, which we established to serve the unique needs of the Asia-Pacific region. We are also fully backed by our parent company, The Boeing Company, and its 95+ years of world-renowned innovation, delivery, performance and value.

Practical applications of our technology include intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, border patrol, coastal monitoring, anti-piracy missions to protect the free flow of international goods, environmental monitoring, search and rescue, disaster relief, and other missions that are too long, dull or dangerous for human pilots.

Mission-ready for virtually any environment imaginable, Insitu systems are agile and versatile, and deliver incredible value.
