Schiebel demonstrated the outstanding capabilities of its Unmanned Air System (UAS) CAMCOPTER® S-100 to the Hellenic Navy. Stationed on board of the Elli-Class Frigate Aigaion (F-460) in the Mediterranean Sea west of Crete, the S-100 showcased in a one-week trial its range, endurance and speed, as well as its maritime surveillance and detection capabilities, to the Hellenic Navy. For the demonstration flights, the CAMCOPTER® S-100 was equipped with a
Trakka TC-300 EO/IR sensor and a Shine Micro Automatic Identification System (AIS) receiver.
The scenarios alternated day and night take-offs and landings. They included cooperation with other Hellenic Navy vessels, maritime traffic monitoring and coast observation.
Hans Georg Schiebel, Chairman of the Schiebel Group, said: “Our CAMCOPTER® S-100 is the only UAV of its class with extensive flight experience. It is operated by 14 navies worldwide and we are very proud that we had the chance to
successfully showcase our system to the Hellenic Navy.”
