A Message from Insitu

Caring for our community is an important part of Insitu’s culture. In doing so, we recognize we are more than an employer. Our team is made up of neighbors, friends, family and volunteers who share this core value and act upon it every day. We do this by engaging within our community as volunteers. By serving in civic organizations such as city councils and non-profits. By being good stewards of the beautiful landscapes we call home. By promoting and supporting STEM education opportunities in our area to build a robust pipeline of talented employees into the next generation of Insitu innovation. By promoting a workforce united by diversity and empowered by a common mission.

We strive to build upon our presence in these ways and are constantly searching for new opportunities to help elevate the places we live and work. In doing so, it is our commitment to not only ensure Insitu grows sustainably, but that we as a company continue to engage with our communities to make certain that growth is felt in a positive way.

Insitu History

Insitu History

In 1994 we got our start in a pole barn garage in Bingen, Washington. We were engineering Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) initially to monitor weather, which later lead to working with the tuna industry. The incredible agility, responsiveness and safety of our UAS got us thinking: We can do more. We can expedite the efforts of search and rescue teams, come to the aid of emergency response personnel, help troops in the field and civilians stay safe and so much more.So we did just that, all while pioneering a now-global industry along the way.
