Schiebel Demonstrates Camcopter S-100

UAV Demonstrated as Anti-Sub, Surveillance, and Cargo Drone

Schiebel and Thales recently demonstrated their ASW/ISR-equipped Camcopter S-100 at Dynamic Messenger 2022 in Portugal. 

The demonstrations were undertaken as a part of a larger NATO exercise showcasing the latest and greatest in uncrewed defense systems with a particular focus on real-world efficacy and application. Schiebel approached the issue with a slightly different bend, showing off their Camcopters antisubmarine capabilities instead of the usual routine focusing on UAS ISR performance. 

During the exercise, an aircraft outfitted with an Overwatch Imaging PT-8 Oceanwatch and Wescam MX-10, showed how easily it could automatically detect and identify small objects at sea in various sea states. Such as a valuable part of ISR and SAR missions. With its suspended cargo delivery net, the Camcopter S-100 also successfully delivered medical supplies from the port to a ship nearby.

Hans Georg Schiebel, chairman of the Schiebel Group, said his company appreciated the chance to exhibit. “It was an honor to participate in this year’s NATO’s exercise in Portugal. Together with Thales and the UK Royal Navy, we successfully completed numerous flight trials of the S-100, showcasing a variety of impressive capabilities. I am very proud to be able to state that with several hundred thousand flight hours under its belt, the Camcopter S-100 is the only established and operationally proven UAV of its class.”
