Scan Eagle

Members of the Scan Eagle team position the Skyhook arrested recovery system over the flight deck to remove a Scan Eagle unmanned aerial vehicle aboard the amphibious dock landing ship USS Comstock (LSD 45). The Skyhook system allows Scan Eagle to operate from several platforms, including forward fields, mobile vehicles and small ships. Scan Eagle is a runway independent, long-endurance, unmanned aerial vehicle system designed to provide multiple surveillance, reconnaissance data, and battlefield damage assessment missions. Comstock is part of the Boxer Amphibious Ready Group and is underway in the U.S. 7th Fleet area of responsibility. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Joseph M.
