Insitu Gets Additional $232M SOCOM UAS ISR Task Order

The U.S. Special Operations Command has awarded Boeing‘s (NYSE: BA) Insitu subsidiary a potential $232 million task order under a single-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to provide mid-endurance unmanned aircraft systems.

The Defense Department said Wednesday the order has a $5,000 minimum value and extends Insitu’s intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance services for the MEUAS II-B platform.

SOCOM obligated $12 million in fiscal 2018 operations and maintenance funds at the time of award.

The command issued the new order one year after it awarded Insitu an MEUAS 1.5-B support extension worth $195 million.

Bingen, Wash.-based Insitu manufactures UAS platforms to support government and commercial ISR programs, as well as environmental monitoring, precision agriculture, search-and-rescue, disaster relief and mining operations.
