Netherlands MoD orders Integrator UAS
Insitu has received a contract for its Integrator UAS from the Netherlands Ministry of Defence, the company announced on 1 June.
Under the contract, Insitu will supply three Integrator systems that will replace the ScanEagle systems currently in use with the Netherlands defence forces.
Integrator is a multi-mission, long-endurance UAS that can carry custom payloads for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance for land and maritime operations such as force protection, target acquisition and battle damage assessment.
With a payload capacity of 18kg (40lbs), Integrator supports an evolving set of sensors, delivers line-of-sight communications up to 55 nautical miles and is supported by runway-independent launch and recovery systems. The UAS is controlled by ICOMC2, which allows one operator to control multiple UAS from a single workstation.
The Netherlands is set to receive the Integrator systems from 2018.
