Insitu Receives $160M Navy UAV Support Contract

Boeing‘s (NYSE: BA) Insitu subsidiary has secured a four-year, $160.3 million contract to provide training, test and engineering services in support of the U.S. Navy’s RQ-21A Blackjack and ScanEagle unmanned aerial vehicles.

Insitu will also perform organizational-level maintenance work, install hardware, develop noncommercial software and data, conduct land and ship surveys and create engineering change proposals under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, the Department of Defense said Tuesday.

Naval Air System Command awarded the award on a sole-source basis and expects the services to conclude by June 2026.

Eighty-eight percent of contract work will occur in Bingen, Washington state, and the remaining 12 percent will be performed in various locations outside the continental U.S.

Blackjack is a small tactical UAS capable of carrying out both land and sea operations and ScanEagle is a long-endurance drone designed to support electronic warfare and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions.
