Boeing Subsidiary Wins $190M For Special Operations UAV ISR Service

BoeingLogoA Washington state-based Boeing (NYSE: BA) subsidiary has won a potential $190 million contract to provide an intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance service to Florida-based U.S. Special Operations Command.

Unmanned aerial systems maker Insitu Inc. will provide SoCom the Mid-Endurance Unmanned Aircraft System ISR service via contractor-owned and contractor-operated equipment, the Defense Department said Tuesday.

Work under the potential 25-month month indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract will occur in Bingen, Wash. and at overseas locations.

The State Department is acquiring hand-launched UAVs that fly two-hour missions for protecting diplomats in high-risk countries and transmitting video from those locations.

That contract also requires the winner to provide the department a second set of drones for six-hour flights at altitudes of up to 18, 000 feet.
