The "ScanEagle 2" is a further evolution of the Boeing Insitu "ScanEagle" Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) series (detailed elsewhere on this site). The new model brings about use of a new heavy-fuel engine for improved reliability as well as broadening the product's line for increased service in commercial markets. To date the ScanEagle series has served the United States military, special forces elements and other major military powers of the world with good results. It is also used in some commercial sectors like the oil industry.

When compared to the original product, ScanEagle 2 incorporates a larger nose assembly to better support mission optics and sensor equipment. Its payload limit has also been increased. A tubular fuselage is retained as are swept-back wing mainplanes. The new engine, provided by Orbital, is seated at the rear of the design and drives a three-bladed propeller unit in a "pusher" configuration. The wing mainplanes also sport vertical fins at their tips. Launching of the UAV system is by way of a catapult which allows for operation from fixed position, vehicle and warships as small as patrol craft.

November 2018 - Malaysia has established its first all-drone squadron. The force relies on the ScanEagle 2 provided by the United States through the Maritime Security Initiative.
