The reconnaissance aircraft, whose full name is the Boeing Insitu ScanEagle, is a small, long-endurance, and low-altitude drone built by Insitu, a subsidiary of the American Boeing Company, with an estimated worth of  $11.25 million.
ScanEagle has a range of 1,500km and an endurance of more than 28 hours. The air vehicle can operate at speeds between 80km/h and 126km/h and the cruise speed is 90km/h in level flight. The vehicle achieves a maximum rate of climb of 150m/min to a maximum altitude of 4,880m or 16,000ft.
