Boeing’s Insitu has won a $390 million contract to supply RQ-21A Blackjack drones and ScanEagle Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) meant for the US Marines, US Navy and governments of Canada, Poland and Oman respectively.

According to the contract announced by the US Department of Defense on Friday, the company will supply 63 RQ-21A attrition air vehicles for the US Marine Corps and US Navy. In addition, the contract provides for up to six RQ-21A UASs and up to 17 RQ-21A air vehicles for Foreign Military Sales (FMS) customers, including the governments of Canada, Poland and Oman. The contractor will also provide up to 93 ScanEagle UASs in various configurations.

The deal provides for associated services, including training, test and engineering, development of engineering change proposals, operations support, organizational level maintenance, field service representatives, land and ship surveys, hardware site activations, hardware installs, repairs and data.

The RQ-21A Small Tactical Unmanned Aerial System (STUAS) is a twin-boom, single-engine monoplane, designed as a supplement to Boeing’s Scan Eagle, which is used for reconnaissance over land and water.

Work is expected to be completed in June 2022.
