Big Things Coming for the UAV Industry?

The Next Generation Insitu Product: Integrator

Wired.com’s Danger Room has a great piece on the future of the Unmanned Systems business.  Needless to say, if you’re somebody in the supply chain already, this makes you look pretty smart:

But based on current tech trends (everything always gets more expensive), anticipated (that is to say, flat) budgets and projected threats (China and terrorists, as usual), the military believes it can make do for the next three decades with air fleets roughly the same size as today’s — with just one big exception. The robot air force will double in just the next nine years.

Not bad if you’re in the business.  If you’re not, well, you might want to reconsider.  Check out the full piece here.

Insitu Wins Another One

In case you haven’t heard by now, PNDC member Insitu has racked up another win.  This time they won a contract valued at more than $83M to support the currently fielded Scan Eagle systems, which are also built by Insitu.  While this win isn’t necessarily a big surprise to observers, it is certainly a sign of the Navy’s continued confidence in Insitu to deliver high-quality services to the warfighters in the field.  Congrats to everyone on Team Insitu for the win!
