FlightGlobal reports that Boeing subsidiary Insitu debuted its ScanEagle3 UAV at the “annual AUVSI gathering.” Boeing is promoting the UAV as a “primarily commercial product that is free of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations that govern its other aircraft, such as the ScanEagle2 and Integrator.” According to Insitu Commercial Vice President Mark Bauman, this “enables us as, a commercial business, to access the global market more easily.” Insitu believes that the ScanEagle3 could be popular with foreign militaries, “but is focused first on marketing the drone commercially, Bauman adds.” The UAV can carry up to 20lbs, more than twice that of the ScanEagle, “and up to three payloads simultaneously, which Insitu says enables it to collect and analyse more data in a single flight.” (Image Credit: U.S. Navy | Wikipedia)
