Washington (UPI) Oct 26, 2017


The Pentagon announced Insitu Inc., a subsidiary of Boeing Defense, Space and Security, has been awarded a new $9.2 million firm-fixed price contract for spare and sustainment parts for the RQ-21A Blackjack.

The RQ-21 Blackjack is a small tactical unmanned intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance platform used by the Department of the Navy and the U.S. Marine Corps.

The RQ-21A is used to supplement another unmanned aerial vehicle, the Boeing Scan Eagle, and can use the same launcher and recovery system as the Scan Eagle.

The contract, announced Wednesday by the Department of Defense, calls for the procurement of spare and sustainment parts for the RQ-21A in support of U.S. Marine Corps operations.

Work on the project will be performed in Bingen, Wash., where Insitu is headquartered, and is expected to be completed in April 2018.

Navy officials said procurement funds will be allocated from the Marine Corps fiscal 2017 budget in the amount of $9,200,000. To date, Insitu, Inc., has worked on three hundred and sixty-five contracts worth $2.12 billion in obligations from the federal government since fiscal year 2007, according to InsideGov, a government visualization database.

In addition to supplying the Defense Department, Insitu, Inc., also fulfills contracts for the Department of Homeland Security and the Transportation Department. In fiscal year 2016, the company received a total of $483 million in obligations from the U.S. government.
