Boeing and Abu Dhabi Autonomous Systems Investments Company (ADASI) have signed a teaming agreement pursuing opportunities for marketing unmanned systems in the Middle East. The teaming agreement expands on a previous agreement between ADASI and Insitu, a wholly owned Boeing subsidiary that makes the ScanEagle and Integrator. That collaboration allowed for support and sustainment of Insitu’s unmanned ISR products and services.
The new teaming agreement will expand ADASI’s support of Boeing/InSitu ScanEagle and Integrator UAS, offering training, support and marketing services, initially in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), with prospects to expand into the Middle East and North Africa.
“This agreement advances Boeing’s strategy of partnering with best-in-industry companies such as ADASI,” said Debbie Rub, a vice president and general manager in Boeing Military Aircraft. “We plan to continue investing and growing in the UAE and the broader Middle East region in order to support U.S. allies’ enduring need for affordable intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) solutions, such as ScanEagle and Integrator.” The agreement also supports the ongoing drive to develop UAE national capabilities within ADASI.
