Improved Nighttime Imagery on NightEagle UAS


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Insitu Inc
: 26 August, 2010  (New Product)
Upgraded Mid-Wave infrared imaging system fitted to the NightEagle unmanned aircraft system from Insitu delivering improved aerial night vision to ground based troops
Insitu’s NightEagle unmanned aircraft system (UAS) is now fully integrated into combat operations after successfully completing fielding of an upgraded mid-wave infrared (MWIR) imager payload.

Insitu responded to an urgent, mission-critical request to field the advanced MWIR imager, which provides even greater night time vision for soldiers. The new sensors were rapidly fielded through an in-theatre upgrade kit implemented by Insitu deployed operations representatives who provide global operations and maintenance of Insitu UAS 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year.

The upgrade was implemented into the customer’s existing in-theatre NightEagle fleet and flew successfully within a few days before the required date. The new configuration consists of upgrades to Ground support equipment and new software. Implementation includes specialized in-field training.

“When the customer approached us with this critical need, we felt confident that we could successfully field the new NightEagle MWIR imager in theatre,” said Insitu Vice President of Sustainment Operations and General Manager Mary Margaret Evans. “In less time than was expected of us, we delivered a mission-ready payload to meet the needs of the soldier.”

NightEagle’s MWIR payload assures continued intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance coverage when dust and rain blind other infrared sensors. With more continuous zoom and a wider range of articulation and field-of-regard, the second generation MWIR imager payload helps keep eyes on target.
