Schiebel has won a maritime surveillance service provision contract by the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) to supply Camcopter S-100 Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) services.
The UAVs will be equipped with L3 Wescam MX-10 Electro-Optical/Infra-Red (EO/IR) camera gimbal, an Overwatch Imaging PT-8 Oceanwatch payload and an Automatic Identification System (AIS) receiver, Schiebel said in a statement Thursday.
The Camcopter S-100 has a maximum take-off weight (MTOW) of 200 kilograms (440 lb, about 6 hour endurance, maximum speed of 220 kilometres per hour (140 mph) and a ceiling of 5,500 metres (18,000 ft). It is powered by a 55 horsepower (41 kW) Diamond engine and can carry various payloads, such as electro-optics and infrared sensors.
Schiebel has demonstrated search and rescue as well as maritime surveillance capabilities of the Camcopter S-100 Unmanned Air System (UAS) to the Belgian Navy. Schiebels trials for the Belgian Navy aimed at building a knowledge base and developing a concept of operations for the use of UAS in support of search and rescue (SAR) as well as intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions, the company said in a statement Tuesday
Schiebel and Overwatch Imaging successfully integrated PT8 Oceanwatch, a small target detection payload, on the CAMCOPTER S-100 Unmanned Air System (UAS). The PT-8 Oceanwatch delivers an image-based wide area maritime search capability that extends the coverage area and makes the CAMCOPTER S-100 a naval patrol solution, the company said in a statement Wednesday
Airbus Helicopters and Schiebel have tested Manned Unmanned Teaming (MUM-T) capabilities between an H145 platform and a CAMCOPTER S-100 Unmanned Air System (UAS), at the highest level of interoperability (LOI°5).
