Autonomous Systems

Integrating and delivering autonomous capabilities from seabed to space for customers worldwide.

From Seabed-to-Space

Autonomy has the potential to revolutionize the way humans connect, protect, explore and inspire.

But autonomy is about more than just the latest unmanned product.

It’s about purposeful innovation in areas like persistence and intelligence. The true value of autonomy lies in its ability to help customers stay on mission longer, cover more area and provide more immediate, actionable knowledge – prioritizing manpower for the most important actions and decisions.

It’s about understanding the challenges of certain missions … knowing the systems already in place … and having the ability to integrate intelligent and flexible autonomous solutions to help make existing systems smarter, missions safer and operations more efficient.

It’s about applying that power of autonomy from seabed to space – because the potential to communicate and collaborate across domains in real-time can revolutionize how humans approach some of the world’s most pressing challenges.

For 100 years, Boeing has led manned and unmanned technology innovation and integration from sea to air to space. Autonomy will define the next 100 years – and Boeing is driving the safe innovation and integration of autonomy to maximize human potential.


The vast, harsh and unpredictable nature of the ocean makes it a difficult and manpower-intensive place to explore, operate and protect.

Long-endurance, autonomous maritime vehicles offer new ways to gather data and conduct missions in the ocean, and communicate across domains to deliver actionable intelligence.

Space is one of the most extreme environments humans operate in, making it one of the most suitable for autonomous technologies.  Boeing has been a part of space travel since the beginning, employing the latest autonomous technology to help protect human life, reach farther and accomplish more.  From satellites to manned exploration to fully autonomous vehicles that operate in space for months at a time, Boeing is setting new standards for what is possible autonomously today and in the future.


Remote Sensing Solutions

Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) can fill gaps that are seemingly impossible. From providing safer inspections in dangerous or harsh environments to assessing hard-to-reach places, we deliver real-time information our customers need for unparalleled global business intelligence.

With more than 10 years of UAS flight services and information delivery experience, Boeing-Insitu can help maximize the power of UAS, safely, providing detailed, actionable information for real-time decisions.

Whether moving products and people safely to destinations, providing energy and natural resources or growing crops, Boeing is a trusted leader in UAS information delivery.

Boeing has unmanned vehicles that operate in the sea, across the ground, in the air and beyond Earth’s atmosphere. Unmanned vehicles can go places and do things traditional vehicles cannot, or where it is unsafe for humans. They are more economical and versatile than manned vehicles. From small and tactical to large and long endurance, or from high altitude to below sea level, Boeing (and its heritage companies) has provided for nearly 75 years the resources to achieve mission success for a wide range of customers.
