Schiebel Displays Heavy Fuel Capability of CAMCOPTER S-100

Schiebel has successfully demonstrated the heavy fuel variant of the CAMCOPTER S-100 Unmanned Air System (UAS) as part of its customer acceptance programme with the Royal Australian Navy (RAN).
 
Under the directive of the Navy Minor Project (NMP) 1942 to procure a vertical take-off and landing Maritime Tactical Unmanned Aircraft System – Interim Capability (MTUAS-IC), RAN sought a platform for shipborne ISR. 
 
Selected for its maturity and demonstrated capability, Schiebel’s CAMCOPTER S-100 UAS successfully completed its flying programme for the RAN validation and verification customer acceptance programme. 
 
In a comprehensive series of tests, the JP-5 (NATO F-44) heavy fuel powered CAMCOPTER S-100, equipped with a Wescam MX-10S payload and at operational ranges of up to 60 nautical miles as well as altitudes above 10 000 feet, presented its ability to deliver world-class imagery to commanders. 
RAN Contract Manager Kevin Beare said: “The heavy fuel variant of the S-100 has performed very well during the validation and verification programme and the RAN looks forward to utilising this platform to achieve NMP1942 project objectives over the coming years.” 
 
Hans Georg Schiebel, Chairman of the Schiebel Group said: “We are excited about the positive feedback we are receiving from RAN and are looking forward to continued cooperation in the future.”
