Vienna-based Schiebel company is celebrating 10 years since the first delivery of its CAMCOPTER S-100 unmanned helicopter, this year.
The first CAMCOPTER S-100 was delivered to the UAE Armed Forces in 2006 and only three years later, the company had sold its 100th aircraft. Development of the type began in 1995.
The CAMCOPTER S-100 now undertakes missions on five continents and oceans and its multi-sensor capability has meant that the S-100 performs across a wide spectrum of applications, from peace-keeping and humanitarian assistance to industrial, maritime and military support.
Naval customers include the French Navy and the Italian Navy, who deployed the CAMCOPTER S-100 during their EU NAVFOR Anti-Piracy Operation in the Arabian Sea, and the Mare Nostrum Operation in the Mediterranean respectively.
