Background:

Fire Scout is an operationally tested, field-proven, autonomous tactical intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) system that moves with war fighters on sea and land, providing situational and environmental awareness.

While deployed aboard FFG 42, Fire Scout regularly maintained 12-hour days on station, providing continuous support. The system accomplished a new single-day endurance record by providing ISR support for an entire 24-hour period. For the first time ever, HSL 42 conducted dual air vehicle operations.
