Boeing Co. won a contract valued at as much as $250 million from the Pentagon to provide and operate unmanned aircraft for surveillance missions, the Defense Department said.

The aerospace company will supply its ScanEagle unmanned aerial vehicles on a fee-for-service basis to the U.S. Special Operations Command, a Boeing spokesman said.

Boeing will supply both the operators and drones fitted with sensors and cameras to gather video and still images for the Pentagon, he said. The company already has a similar arrangement with the U.S. Navy.
