Insitu UAS Incorporates MetaVR Visuals

Insitu, Inc. of Bingen, Washington, uses MetaVR VRSG in one of its Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS). The Insitu unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is a compact, economical, long endurance UAV suited for land- and maritime-based commercial, military, and homeland security applications.

The Insitu UAV is four feet long with a 10-foot wingspan, and carries a payload of up to 13 pounds. Capable of flying above 16,000 feet, the UAV normally provides persistent low-altitude reconnaissance. Its inertially stabilized camera turret mounted on the nose of the aircraft can house either an electro-optical daylight or infrared camera and can track stationary or moving targets of interest for extended periods of time.

The Insitu UAS includes the UAV, SuperWedge™ catapult launcher, SkyHook™ retriever, and a mobile ground control component, all of which have a small footprint and are quickly reconfigurable in the field. Designed for continuous missions of over 15 hours, and without requiring a runway for launch or retrieval, the UAV can be used for operations in non-traditional UAV environments, such as the ocean or rugged terrain.
