Arctic

The Arctic is frigid, certainly. But extreme cold is only part of the challenge. Due to the region's spatial and secluded placement, challenges include free passage, resource extraction and environmental conservation rights. To this end, countries across Asia, Europe and North America are concerned with these issues and the regional economic, territorial and geopolitical implications.

You likely have remote offices, remote research sites and remote expeditionary teams. And you need unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) that will operate precisely where you are, which also happens to be the most extreme environment on the planet.

Insitu systems are used in coordinated disaster response exercises in the Arctic. In 2011, Operation Nanook brought together Canadian Forces, its security partners, and numerous federal, territorial and municipal governments to conduct sovereignty operations and security exercises in Canada’s Northwest Passage. The exercise focused on a major air disaster simulation, during which ScanEagle® provided overwatch to Canadian Forces.

The runway-independent ScanEagle UAS is deployed by Insitu and its Canadian-based partner, ING Engineering, to identify traversable ground routes, watch for polar bear threats and to monitor day-to-day iceberg movements. In the Arctic, commanders in tactical operations centers and troops on the ground received real-time, stable video.

Our UAS are also used to search for ice seals at the southern edge of the Bering Sea. Imagery helps environmental researchers estimate the abundance and distribution of the mammals.

While the Arctic may seem like an impractical area to deploy, our proven shipboard launch and recovery lets you enter extreme environments from a practical location. System modularity allows for rapid technology upgrades and system reconfiguration to improve reliability in harsh conditions.

With hundreds of thousands of operational flight hours under our belt, you can rely on Insitu UAS for decision-making superiority.
