Insitu UAVs to incorporate Persistent Systems MANET technology

NEW YORK, N.Y. Officials at Insitu, a Boeing Company, and Persistent Systems, LLC. entered in a five-year agreement to incorporate Persistent’s Wave Relay mobile ad hoc network (MANET) technology into their line of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), including the ScanEagle, ScanEagle2, ScanEagle3, Integrator, and RQ-21A Blackjack.

In incorporating Persistent’s MANET radios on their UAVs, Insitu will be a member of the Wave Relay Ecosystem, an alliance of companies using Wave Relay MANET radios in their products. This will allow Insitu’s platforms to work with all other Wave Relay MANET-enabled products.
