Insitu ScanEagle to Fly ViDAR Payload to Enhance Maritime ISR

Keeping the world’s international waters safe demands that decision makers have access to the best tactical information in the most challenging environments. Insitu, through its collaboration with Hood Technologies and Sentient, is excited to announce that it will incorporate the ViDAR (Visual Detection and Ranging) payload into its fleet of unmanned systems, beginning with its ScanEagle unmanned aircraft. ViDAR is a wide area autonomous detection system for electro-optic imagery in the maritime domain. In addition to cueing ScanEagle’s primary camera turret, the payload gives operators who typically must rely on larger, more expensive aircraft to detect objects in the ocean a smaller, more cost-effective solution.
