Insitu ScanEagle - US military unmanned aerial vehicle developed by the corporation «Insitu Inc.».

The development of the Insitu ScanEagle unmanned aerial vehicle was carried out by American aircraft designers for use in the US Armed Forces, and despite the rather high cost of this project, the unmanned aerial vehicle has a very narrow field of application, in particular, the device can only be used for reconnaissance, Also the performance of patrol and observation flights. Nevertheless, despite this fact, the drone of the Insitu ScanEagle received a rather high demand, which was mainly due to the ease of operation and very high flying characteristics, however, the expected production of the UAV should be limited to just a few dozens of aircraft.

The modular design of an unmanned aerial vehicle, its dimensions, in particular wingspan constituting 3 11 meters centimeters, do not cause problems when transporting and immediate operation, especially that the UAV mass is only about 15 kg.

Unmanned aerial vehicle Insitu ScanEagle is equipped with electro-optical, infrared and television cameras, that allows the use of drone for different missions.

The power of the US military unmanned aerial vehicle Insitu ScanEagle represented by one piston gasoline engine, which is having a traction capacity of 1,9 hp, can accelerate to a maximum speed of movement in 100 km \ h., With autonomous flight duration of up to 24 hours.
