Insitu Demos ScanEagle Capabilities at Fort Rucker

(Bingen, Wash., May 13, 2010) -- Insitu Inc., in coordination with the U.S. Army Aviation Center of Excellence, recently demonstrated its heavy fuel engine-configured ScanEagle unmanned aircraft system (UAS) to U.S. Army personnel at Fort Rucker, Ala. It was the first UAS demonstration at Fort Rucker in six years. Insitu successfully demonstrated the interoperability between ScanEagle video with metadata and the U.S. Army's One System Remote Video Terminal (OSRVT). The demonstration was conducted in conjunction with the Joint Systems Integration Laboratory (JSIL). Insitu also showcased its digital video, encrypted data feed, enhancing situational awareness and surveillance of threats. Other technologies on display included a mid-wave infrared (MWIR) sensor that provides high-quality intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) data and imagery at night, as well as Insitu's airborne target tracking system that displays stabilized video and remote video terminal functionality. "We're gratified by the strong interest in ScanEagle that we received from participants in the Fort Rucker demonstration. In our view, this unmanned system provides the Army with the optimal combat-proven ISR solutions it needs to protect warfighters on the front lines in Iraq and Afghanistan," said Insitu Vice President of Business Development Alvin Jackson.
