Insitu Inc. is awarded $47,9 million for delivery order against a previously issued basic ordering agreement for 34 ScanEagle unmanned air vehicles for the governments of Malaysia (12); Indonesia (8); Philippines (8); and Vietnam (6), the U.S. Department of Defense said in a release.

Also this contract provides for spare payloads, spare and repair parts, support equipment, tools, training, technical services, and field service representatives.
