BINGEN, Wash., May 14 (UPI) -- Insitu Inc. said the recent demonstration of its ScanEagle unmanned aircraft technology at Fort Rucker, Ala., was successfully conducted.

Washington state's Insitu, in partnership with the U.S. Joint Forces Command's Joint Systems Integration Laboratory, successfully flew its heavy fuel engine variant ScanEagle unmanned aircraft system along with demonstrating its digital video encrypted data feed.

Insitu's ScanEagle is designed to strengthen situational awareness for troops in combat zones by providing next-generation intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance data including in low light environments during the night.

Officials say the successful demonstration for Army personnel additionally showcased the ScanEagle's interoperability with the military's One System Remote Video Terminal.

"We're gratified by the strong interest in ScanEagle that we received from participants in the Fort Rucker demonstration," Insitu Vice President of Business Development Alvin Jackson said in a statement.
