The teaming couples Schiebel’s proven and world-class Camcopter S-100 UAS with Raytheon Australia’s 20-year pedigree as a trusted, prime systems integrator across multiple domains. Together, the companies will deliver a solution that provides a highly capable, low-risk offering that is intended to establish an enduring sovereign TUAS capability.

Schiebel Pacific has extensive experience in working with the Australian Defence Force (ADF) and local industry. The Royal Australian Navy operates several systems at 822X Squadron, Nowra, New South Wales. Fabian Knechtl, Managing Director of Schiebel Pacific, said: “We are very confident that the capability of the Camcopter S-100, together with the proposed integration into existing ADF systems, is the best solution for the Australian Army. Additionally, Raytheon Australia’s pedigree and experience in sovereign complex systems integration make them the perfect partner and our teaming will assure efficient and timely delivery to the ADF. We are fully committed to the Australian Government’s policy on Australian Industry Capability (AIC) and have already started the ‘transfer of knowledge’ to our local entity and our partners. Over the next several years, Schiebel Pacific will become known as a highly capable Australian UAS provider.”

The Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) UAS Camcopter S-100 is a proven and reliable TUAS for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions. With its small footprint and ability to operate from confined areas, it needs no prepared area or supporting equipment for take-off and landing and it can be set up and ready in 20 minutes. The S-100 operates day and night for up to 8 hours. The UAV has globally collected more than 100,000 flight hours so far.
