Insitu, based in Bingen, Wash., said Wednesday that its Small Tactical Unmanned Aircraft (STUAS) Integrator program completed a system requirements review by the U.S. Navy in February. The company said the milestone establishes system requirements and determines how those requirements will be validated and tested.

“Our highly dedicated team showed that it can leverage our commercially available model of the Integrator UAS to meet the STUAS schedule,” said Insitu Vice President of Programs and STUAS Program Manager Bill Clark.

The STUAS program was awarded to Insitu for its Integrator UAS in July to provide persistent maritime and land-based tactical intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance data collection and dissemination capabilities to the warfighter. Insitu's partners on the project include Boeing, Harris Corp., Corsair Engineering and Black Ram Engineering Service.

“We're one step closer to delivering a new mature, flexible ISR asset with expanded mission options to the warfighter,” said Insitu Interim Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer Charlie Guthrie.
