Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN) has successfully conducted a ship-based trial of the Boeing ScanEagle, a long-endurance, fully autonomous unmanned aircraft system (UAS), launching and recovering the unmanned air vehicle from a landing ship tank vessel and a frigate. ScanEagle was launched and recovered from the ships’ helicopter decks, flying day missions using an electro-optical camera payload and night missions using an infrared camera payload. During the flights, the Boeing ScanEagle successfully demonstrated sea-based launch and recovery capabilities and the ease with which the physical ground support equipment and control hardware can be integrated on board.
