Schiebel, along with Thales and sponsored by the UK Royal Navy participated in REPMUS (Robotic Experimentation and Prototyping utilizing Maritime Uncrewed Techniques) and Dynamic Messenger 2022 in Portugal. Collectively, we efficiently demonstrated the CAMCOPTER® S-100 and its Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW), Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) and cargo supply capabilities, which all acquired huge acclaim. The profitable operational functionality demonstrations of the S-100 have been half of a bigger annual North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) train showcasing Unmanned Techniques and the way the very newest technological developments could be integrated into the platforms for real-world operational profit. Geared up with an Overwatch Imaging PT-8 Oceanwatch and a Wescam MX-10, the S-100 confirmed how simply it might mechanically detect and determine small objects at sea in numerous sea states, as a helpful a part of ISR and SAR missions. With its suspended cargo supply web, the CAMCOPTER® S-100 additionally efficiently delivered medical provides from the port to a ship close by.

Hans Georg Schiebel, Chairman of the Schiebel Group, mentioned: “It was an honour to take part on this yr’s NATO’s train in Portugal. Along with Thales and the UK Royal Navy, we efficiently accomplished quite a few flight trials of the S-100, showcasing quite a lot of spectacular capabilities. I’m very proud to have the ability to state that with a number of hundred thousand flight hours underneath its belt, the CAMCOPTER® S-100 is the one established and operationally confirmed UAV of its class.”

Unmanned Air Techniques have historically centered on delivering ISR, however now Schiebel, working with Thales, are growing an ASW functionality, which was examined for the primary time throughout this NATO train. The demonstrated state of affairs was the surveillance and safety of the approaches to a strategic port. With a barrier of sonobuoys already laid, the S-100 outfitted with a Wescam MX-8 EO/IR sensor within the nostril and a Thales BlueScan® knowledge relay sensor, was deployed to observe the transmission of information from the sonobuoys and relayed it to the command cell ashore, allowing the detection and classification of doable enemy submarines. The main NATO train additionally enabled the CAMCOPTER® S-100 to indicate its current prowess finishing ISR, Search and Rescue (SAR) and cargo supply operations.

Schiebel’s CAMCOPTER® S-100 Unmanned Air System (UAS) is an operationally confirmed functionality for army and civilian purposes. The Vertical Takeoff and Touchdown (VTOL) UAS requires no ready space or supporting gear to allow launch and restoration. It operates by day and by evening, underneath hostile climate situations, with a past line-of-sight functionality out to 200 km / 108 nm, over land and sea. Based in 1951 in Vienna, the globally working Schiebel Group focuses on the event, design and manufacturing of the revolutionary CAMCOPTER® S-100 Unmanned Air System (UAS). Licensed to fulfill AS/EN 9100 requirements, Schiebel has constructed a world repute for producing high-tech army, business and humanitarian merchandise, that are backed by distinctive after-sales service and help. Schiebel has services in Vienna and Wiener Neustadt (Austria), Manassas, VA (USA), Abu Dhabi (UAE), and Shoalhaven (Australia).
