South America

South America is a diverse region, with a variety of expansive lands and seascapes. Over the years there has been an increase in illicit activities. It is a struggle for enforcement authorities to fight the various illegal endeavors in the beautiful South American terrain, which includes remote, hard-to-penetrate areas such as dense forests, mountains and vast expanses of sea. Premier ISR is needed for decision-making superiority.

Insitu unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) are operated in a flexible hub-and-spoke configuration: Unmanned aircraft are launched and retrieved from a hub, and control is passed off to forward operators (“spokes”). Spokes can be situated virtually anywhere, from Humvees to speedboats. Ground control station options, like our Forward Ground Control System, allow forward units to take control of Insitu aircraft. Remote video terminals such as, ROVER and our Forward Eyes, allow the force to see a common picture.

The hub-and-spoke system configuration allows you to provide overwatch as forces move deeper into unknown terrain. You can also create ad-hoc communications networks to keep ground personnel in touch in hard-to-penetrate terrain.

When we launched ScanEagle, we weren’t just launching an aircraft — we were launching a new category of ISR. The concept behind the platform: Create a system that launches from anywhere, stays on station longer and delivers the highest quality data possible to tactical decision-makers. Since 2004 ScanEagle has provided 24/7/365 operations with worldwide customers. We deliver the highest-value ISR capabilities available for both land and maritime missions.

ScanEagle launches autonomously and uses a patented no-nets recovery solution for recovery. The system recovers with its wing tip on a rope that hangs from a boom. The system design is modular. The result is a reliable, in-the-field adaptable system. Operations and maintenance are simplified, and field upgrade kits rapidly deliver new capabilities to existing operations. Operators command pre-programmed or operator-initiated missions, while a global positioning system and onboard flight computer guide the aircraft. Mission capabilities are increased with flexible hub-and-spoke system configurations. That means tactical, agile ISR delivery wherever you go, whenever you need it.

For maritime missions, we have the most shipboard experience in our class. ScanEagle has been deployed shipboard since 2005. Launch and recovery systems allow rapid response to changing missions, and are compact enough to be stowed when not in use, so decks remain clear. Aircraft are recovered safely — without the dangerous task of overflying  or flying toward the ship — using the patented SkyHook® recovery system.

Insitu has been deployed in-theater since 2004 with customers from the United States, Canada, Australia, Singapore, Japan, Malaysia, the Netherlands and Poland, among others. Hundreds of thousands of operational flight hours mean you can count on our systems to help you make the best decisions.
