Schiebel, Diehl Defence Team-up To Sell Camcopter S-100 UAS In Germany

Austria's Schiebel has strengthened its teaming agreement with Diehl Defense recently to continue bidding Camcopter rotary-wing unmanned air vehicle to the German navy.

The renewal of the teaming agreement is the result of the longstanding cooperation between Diehl Defence and Schiebel. “We believe the Camcopter S-100 is the best possible product for all remotely piloted aircraft operations of the German Navy,” said Helmut Rauch, member of the Division Board of Diehl Defence in a statement Sunday.

Diehl Defence possesses broad know-how in the integration of different defence systems and surveillance equipment into German Navy vessels while Schiebel produces the UAS.

The Camcopter S-100 system is currently deployed with a number of important naval clients in conventional littoral reconnaissance roles. It has been used to perform Search and Rescue role. Working with the NGO Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS) in the Mediterranean, around 25 000 migrants have been found and rescued since 2014.

In 2008, Schiebel completed extensive flight trials onboard the German Navys K130 Class Corvettes Braunschweig and Magdeburg in the Baltic Sea.

The S-100 completed more than 130 takeoffs and landings in a total flight time of just 20 hours, achieving results well in excess of expectations and trial requirements. Since then amongst others several developments have since taken place to enhance the UAS further.
