In a combined demonstration sponsored by the US Office of Naval Research (ONR) on a commercial vessel off the coast of Pensacola, Florida, Schiebel and Areté
demonstrated the CAMCOPTER S-100 and its capabilities, as well as Areté’s Pushbroom Imaging Lidar for Littoral Surveillance (PILLS) system. PILLS enables hydrographic mapping of ocean littoral spaces with a low size, weight, and power (SWaP) sensor that easily integrates into the S-100. PILLS has multiple military and commercial applications.

Hans Georg Schiebel, Chairman of the Schiebel Group, said: “We are proud that we could successfully showcase the outstanding capabilities and data-gathering features of our Camcopter S-100 to the US Navy. Globally, we operate extensively on land and at sea and we are confident that our unmanned solution is also the right fit for the US Navy.”

The Schiebel Camcopter S-100 is a medium-range, medium-endurance, vertical take-off and landing unmanned helicopter fully designed and developed by the Austrian Company Schiebel Corporation. The Camcopter S-100 is in service with more than 20 countries all over the world and used by military, security, and naval forces.

The Camcopter  S-100 features platform and payload growth capabilities – with two payload bays, an auxiliary electronics bay, as well as two side payload hardpoints, and the ability to carry underslung loads. The maximum payload weight is 50 kg (110 lbs). The S-100 is made of titanium and carbon fiber materials, designed to carry multiple payloads simultaneously for up to six hours at a time.

The Camcopter  S-100 is able to carry multiple sensors, enabling customers to gather images with an EO/IR camera, detect and identify electronic signatures with ESM systems and use SAR radar simultaneously in real-time with only one system.
