    Certifications

    Quality & Safety Come First

    The AS9100 Standard outlines business requirements for aviation, space and defense organizations. This standard provides guidance for managing variation of key features of material, processes or parts in which the variation has a significant influence on product fit, performance, service life or manufacturability.

    Insitu holds a DHS SAFETY Act Certification and Designation for the ScanEagle, which means that it is a Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology which has undergone a thorough evaluation by the Department of Homeland Security. This affords our customers protection from potential third party liability in the event of a catastrophic event resulting from an act of terrorism (as declared by the DHS Secretary) involving the ScanEagle.
