Unmanned Air Systems, CAMCOPTER S-100
Highly versatile and reliable, Schiebel's Unmanned Air Vehicle - the CAMCOPTER® S-100 - provides a unique balance of advanced capabilities, operational flexibility and outstanding performance.
With its capability for autonomous flight and a fully redundant flight control system, the award winning CAMCOPTER® S-100 can fly a programmed mission without operator intervention. It is a Vertical Takeoff and Landing (VTOL) system, eliminating the need for runways or launch and recovery systems. Whether for use at sea or on land, it has been engineered to aviation standards ensuring reliability on all mission types.
In-depth research and development has led to an Unmanned Air System (UAS) that is designed not only to the highest specification and build quality but is designed to perform in all terrains and environments. Its sleek design belies a tough framework, combining advanced composite materials of carbon fiber with titanium and aluminum. These provide high-end performance coupled with robust, structural strength and a high level of environmental resistance - particularly in maritime environments.
The CAMCOPTER® S-100 has been certified by the Austrian AustroControl GmbH (ACG) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
For total performance flexibility, the CAMCOPTER® S-100 has the ability to complete an entire mission automatically and with zero operator intervention, or it can be reprogrammed at any time when airborne to perform alternative missions or react to task changes.
Programming for an autonomous mission is controlled via a simple point-and-click graphical user interface with payload imagery transmitted to the Control Station (CS) in realtime. Redundant Inertial Navigation Systems (INS) and Global Positioning System (GPS) ensure highly accurate navigation and stability.
In the case of loss of link, an automatic home point function is activated.
