Battle-Tested Endurance, Now With VTOL
The long-endurance Integrator is the most versatile UAS in its class.
With our new VTOL kit, you don’t sacrifice endurance and capability for expeditionary.
Integrator’s 24+ hours of endurance (16+ hours with a full 40-pound payload complement), means you’ll never lose sight of what’s most important.
FLARES Vertical Take-off and Landing kit requires minimal deck space, can launch in high seas and gusty winds, and requires zero aircraft modifications.
Maximize every mission with six payload spaces and up to 40 pounds of cutting-edge sensors. Modularity supports a wide range of missions including electronic warfare, ISR, and comms relay

How does Integrator VTOL work?
FLARES, mated with Integrator, climbs vertically to altitude (500′ AGL), dashes into the wind, and releases Integrator into fixed-wing flight.
- FLARES returns to land/ship via GPS
- In case of an aborted launch, FLARES returns and lands vertically with Integrator still attached.
FLARES takes off vertically tethered, hosting capture rope into the air (~300′). Integrator catches on vertical line via wing hook (<5 min)
- FLARES descends as the capture rope is wheeled onto the winch in MARS (Mast Augmented Recovery System) and Integrator settles onto the top of the mast.
- Unloaded FLARES lands on deck.
Full Range, Endurance, and Capacity
Integrator VTOL offers over 16 hours of endurance carrying a full 40 pounds of Insitu’s best-in-class modular payloads. Up to 24 hours of endurance is available with less payload weight. Range and endurance enable persistent detection, classification, and tracking.
Increased Portability and Self-Sufficiency
Integrator VTOL enables rapid repositioning and operation in tight spaces on land or ship.
Optimized for Shipboard Operation
FLARES is built to operate in high seas and gusty winds, with limited launch and stowage spaces in mind. Launches from small vessel helicopter decks in high pitch and roll environments.
Common Ground Control Station
Small, modular, and expandable GCS with multiple configurations minimizes footprint and maximizes compatibility. Also controls non-Insitu UAV.
Integrator and its variants have been truly battle-tested and deployed around the globe, flying in the harshest environments for a variety of US and international partners.
Compliant with relevant NATO and industry standards to allow interoperability across joint, coalition, and allied forces.
Encrypted command and control data link enables a line-of-sight operating radius beyond 50 nm / 92.6 km, with electromagnetic shielding to support customized communications and radio frequency sensor payloads.
