At Insitu, we design, develop, manufacture, deploy and improve our systems to be the perfect balance of agility and data-delivery power, with the Insitu systems design trinity: a) elegant hardware design; b) Integrated software; and c) adaptive concept of operations.
Our ScanEagle® unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) invented the agile ISR category — and our Integrator™ UAS is perhaps the most versatile payload platform in its class. When you combine these aircraft with our small-footprint, no-nets launch and recovery solution, you have what we believe to be the most mobile and flexible ISR delivery platform on the planet.
From mission planning to multi-aircraft and payload control, post-mission analysis and dissemination, our integrated software gives operators complete and intuitive control throughout every mission phase. Designed to work perfectly with our own UAS and your forward-operating teams, and to be interoperable with your other operations, Insitu software also allows you to augment the value of your ISR data, and get it to the right people at the right time.
Simply put: Hub-and-spoke is where unmanned aircraft are launched and recovery from a hub, and control is passed off to forward operators (“spokes”). Spokes can be situated virtually anywhere, from Humvees to speedboats. Flexible hub-and-spoke system configuration gives mission planners staging options for strategic mission support. The configuration is as powerful as it is flexible, allowing operators to:
Hub (land or sea): Launch, control and recover unmanned aircraft without requiring a runway for launch or recovery. Choose the best aircraft for the mission from Insitu’s family of UAS.
Spoke: Minimize your system footprint by eliminating launch and recovery from forward operations. A spoke takes control of an aircraft from a hub. When the mission ends, it passes control back to the hub for recovery and maintenance.
Man-packable remote video terminal: Keep troops and decision-makers informed by feeding Insitu UAS video to various networked remote video terminals.
Mobile FGCS Spoke (land): Empower embedded operators with full command and control of Insitu aircraft directly from the front lines.
Mobile FGCS Spoke (sea): Provide overwatch to vessel boarding search and seizure teams.
