Navy Picks Boeing’s Insitu for $71M ScanEagle FMS Contract With Afghanistan

Scan Eagle - ExecutiveMosaicBoeing‘s (NYSE: BA) Insitu subsidiary has secured a potential three-year, $71 million contract from the U.S. Navy to produce eight ScanEagle unmanned aerial systems for Afghanistan through a foreign military sales agreement.

The firm-fixed-price contract covers ScanEagle aerial vehicles, support tools, a training facility for the UAVs, spares and field support services, the Defense Department said Wednesday.

The ScanEagle drone works to provide ground- and maritime-based surveillance images and live video feeds through its electro-optical and mid-wave infrared imagers.

The UAV has a 10.2-foot wingspan and can fly for at least 24 hours at a maximum horizontal speed of up to 80 knots.

Work will occur at the firm’s facility in Bingen, Washington, and other locations in Afghanistan through June 2018.

The Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division will obligate $53 million from the Afghanistan security forces funds at the time of award, according to DoD.
