M.Broadbent - ScanEagle spreads its wings /Commercial/
The SkyHook system is used to recover a ScanEagle after a mission; the system has 24-hour endurance.
The command centre set up by Insitu at the Eagle Creek fire that burned nearly 50,000 acres; the ScanEagle was the only aviation platform within the temporary flight restriction area set up to cover the fire allowed to operate at night.
A ScanEagle flies above the Surat Basin in Queensland, Australia, where Shell is now using the system to inspect its oil pipelines and surrounding infrastructure.
The 10.2ft-wingspan ScanEagle is inspecting nearly 200 oil well heads a day on Shell's operations in Australia, Insitu says.
