Tactical Uncrewed Aerial System

The Tactical Uncrewed Aerial System Project (LAND129 Phase 3) will replace the RQ-7B Shadow 200 Tactical Uncrewed Aerial System (UAS) with a new UAS that supports the tactical level intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance requirements of Army’s Combat Brigades.

Insitu Pacific has been selected to deliver the new UAS known as the Integrator. Insitu Pacific will supply:

  • integrator platform
  • associated ground systems
  • integration services.

As part of the sensor suite, an Australian-designed camera gimbal is being incorporated into the design. The advanced CM234 Spitfire camera gimbal has been developed by Melbourne based Australian company Ascent Vision Technologies, with support and investment from the Defence Innovation Hub. This will provide enhanced surveillance and target acquisition capability to the Integrator.

The Integrator has the capability to provide greater performance in:

  • payload modularity
  • endurance
  • deployability
  • connectivity
  • interoperability.

Insitu Pacific will manufacture the platform at its Queensland facility, directly supporting 130 new and existing jobs across Australia.

Training of 20th Regiment, Royal Australian Artillery personnel and initial live flight activities commenced in July 2022.
