RQ-23 TigerShark On July 29, 2014 NASC (Navmar Applied Sciences Corporation) announced the availability of the TigerShark XP, a commercial version of their RQ-23 TigerShark RPA, which has performed highly successful Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions for the US military in numerous theaters of operation.

The TigerShark XP is a group three category RPA that leverages the demonstrated reliability and proven operational performance of the TigerShark RQ-23 with emphasis on system upgrades including improved flight performance, SATCOM and multi-sensor compatibility.
