The modular design of ScanEagle continues to provide innovative, cost-effective ISR solutions. ScanEagle Dual Bay is an expanded ScanEagle unmanned aircraft with an electro-optic (EO) sensor in the nose bay and a spacious payload compartment in the mid-bay. Converting existing ScanEagle aircraft to the dual-bay configuration is a field-level upgrade. Because dedicated configurations aren’t required, you can swap special payloads from aircraft to aircraft.
As daylight fades to darkness, switch from our EO payload in the nose bay to our long-wave infrared payload in the mid-bay. Doing so keeps the ScanEagle Dual Bay aircraft on target through twilight, expanding mission possibilities and providing operational flexibility.
Our mid-bay synthetic-aperture radar (SAR) payload — NanoSAR — lets you conduct broad-area surveillance, all-weather penetration and battle-damage assessment missions at the tactical level, without waiting for overburdened national assets. To take a closer look, just switch to the EO payload in the nose bay and auto-focus on target.
Electronic warfare, communications relay payloads — whether you’re adding your own payload or having Insitu build it for you, our interface control document makes payload integration possible.
A payload bay multiplies the force of combat-proven, runway-independent ScanEagle. Fielded from land and sea-based, flexible hub-and-spoke sites since 2004, ScanEagle now offers you more choice in tactical-level ISR.
*Max takeoff weight is based on optimal performance conditions. Max takeoff weight in typical operating conditions is 44 lb (20 kg).
SuperWedge Launcher (legacy launcher): Good for typical missions
Mark 4 Launcher (next-generation launcher): Good for typical missions and missions requiring peak performance. High-pressure launch allows for optimal fuel, payload and endurance capabilities.
