    An X-200 ScanEagle is refueled and prepared for future launch here Nov. 20. The aircraft, with Marine Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Squadron 2, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (Forward), is calibrated so precise that it requires a scale to measure the amount of fuel being injected into the aircraft. The ScanEagle can stay airborne for nine to 14 hours, depending on weather conditions and other factors, while providing real-time intelligence and overwatch for troops on the ground.
