Schiebel Pacific and Raytheon Australia have teamed up for the LAND129 Phase 3 Tactical Unmanned Aerial System (TUAS) project for the Australian Army; the tender response was submitted last week.
The teaming offered Schiebel’s CAMCOPTER S-100 to establish an enduring sovereign TUAS capability.
Schiebel Pacific has previously worked with the Australian Defence Force (ADF) and local industry. The Royal Australian Navy operates several systems at 822X Squadron, Nowra, New South Wales, a Schiebel statement said Monday.
The Australian Army has previously down-selected Insitu Pacific; Leidos Australia; Raytheon Australia; and Textron Systems Australia for the LAND129 Phase 3 TUAS project.
