The Socialist Republic of Vietnam is to field the Insitu ScanEagle unmanned aircraft system (UAS) as part of a wider ramp-up of its airborne maritime surveillance capabilities.

The procurement of six unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) was announced by the US Department of Defense (DoD) on 31 May in a deal that included previously disclosed procurements and follow-on orders for three other Asia-Pacific countries.

Further to the air vehicles, the contract provides for spare payloads, spare and repair parts, support equipment, tools, training, technical services, and field service representatives. Work is expected to complete in March 2022.
