Insitu ScanEagle launchInsitu, a developer of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), and aerial data provider PrecisionHawk have announced the formation of a strategic alliance. The collaboration brings together UAS solutions to help commercial enterprises achieve safe unmanned flight for extended and beyond-visual-line-of-sight operations.

It also leverages the extensive research and testing capabilities of two of the participants of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Pathfinder Program, which is dedicated to expanding the use of UAS within the nation’s airspace.

”While our businesses are diverse, the areas where we intersect have tremendous potential for creating new opportunities in the commercial industries we both serve,” said Ryan M. Hartman, Insitu President and CEO. “This alliance ensures that more businesses will explore what unmanned technology can offer.”

Thanks to the integration of each company’s proprietary platforms, hardware and software, Insitu and PrecisionHawk plan to deliver even more data insights.

“Our customers are always pushing us to bring more advanced and comprehensive solutions, and we go above and beyond to make sure we are developing tools that serve their specific needs, “ said PrecisionHawk president Christopher Dean. “We believe this alliance with Insitu will help us deliver on our promise even more. “

The emphasis of the U.S.-based alliance is on providing business intelligence support for commercial operations, including asset protection, property preservation, safety enhancement and environmental monitoring.
