ScanEagle Surveillance Drone

The ScanEagle Surveillance Drone is a small, long-endurance, low-altitude unmanned aerial vehicle built by Insitu, which is a subsidiary of Boeing. Its main purpose is for reconnaissance missions through fish-spotting. Throughout the last few years, the ScanEagle has received numerous improvements and upgrades, often with better sensors, cameras, batter, and internet capabilities. This drone is a low-cost solution, which can be operated from ocean-going ships. Many however, have been captured by Iran during U.S. involvement in neighboring Iraq, resulting in reverse-engineering and illegal production for the Iranian Air Force and Navy.

The ScanEagle offers a lot of benefits in a small package. It carries an infrared camera, integrated communications system, flight endurance for over 20 hours, and its own GPS navigation system.
