With Insitu systems, you can be located anywhere on the planet, whether on land or at sea. Our family of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) have logged hundreds of thousands of operational flight hours since 2004, and we have successfully operated in some of the most extreme environments in the world. Regardless of your mission requirement or system configuration, from the tropics to the desert, from the ocean to the mountains, Insitu UAS are proved to help you make the best decision.
Our UAS have been successfully deployed shipboard since 2005. Whether installed on an offshore patrol vessel, frigate or guided missile destroyer, our 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. Our aircraft are recovered safely — without the dangerous task of overflying or flying toward the ship.
Our unmanned aircraft are launched autonomously via a pneumatic wedge catapult launcher. The launcher accelerates the air vehicle to flight speeds quickly, allowing launches from unprepared sites. Our legacy SuperWedge Launcher has been fielded since we first deployed with the U.S. Marine Corps in 2004. Our next-generation Mark IV Launcher provides the high power needed to launch all Insitu aircraft in high-altitude, low-air-density environments.
Our unmanned aircraft are recovered using the patented SkyHook® recovery system. A cable is suspended from roughly 50 feet (15 meters). The aircraft flies toward the cable, and a hook on the aircraft’s wing catches the cable.
For tactical UAS, it is the most nimble, mobile, and versatile launch and recovery system in the world. The system is capable of getting perhaps the widest variety of payload up in the air with the least amount of space required.
