(Vienna/Uberlingen, June 2, 2010) -- This year, Schiebel's CAMCOPTER(r) S-100 Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) is making aviation history. As the first unmanned VTOL (Vertical Take Off and Landing) System to fly at ILA Berlin, the helicopter will prove its extraordinary skills at Berlin Schonefeld airport from 8 to 13 June 2010 by daily flight displays.
The pictures of the flight displays will be shown in real time. Included on the viewing screens at the Berlin Air Show will be the data transmission of the sensor on the CAMCOPTER(r) S-100; an EO/IR payload camera.
CAMCOPTER(r) S-100 was the first and only UAS flying in the history of the Le Bourget Air Show in Paris 2009. We are very pleased to show the advantages of our unmanned helicopter to a wide expert audience said Hans Georg Schiebel, Manager of Schiebel.
Claus Gunther, member of the Diehl Executive Board and President of the Corporate Division Board Diehl Defence, is optimistic for the future: This is not the first time our cooperation partner Schiebel's helicopter drone has offered a convincing performance in Germany. In the summer of 2008, the CAMCOPTER(r) S-100 successfully completed a three-week test series with the German Navy's new corvettes K130.
The CAMCOPTER(r) S-100 carries out target and impact reconnaissance contributing to the protection of German soldiers in military operations. The work share of Diehl BGT Defence as prime contractor comprises the system's adaptation to German requirements, provision of sensors and logistics as well as integration in the German corvette K130 as well as the army's reconnaissance troops inventory.
With its proven maritime capability, the CAMCOPTER(r) S-100 is used in civil as in the military sector. Its outstanding, multi-tasking networking abilities -ISTAR (Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance) are essential for missions in military-maritime sector. Data can be gathered, analyzed and used directly without time loss for optimal implementation of the mission.
The perfect size and mobility of the CAMCOPTER(r) S-100 makes it the ideal UAS (Unmanned Aerial System) of its class. With its innovative autonomous flight control and its unique performance data the CAMCOPTER(r) S-100 is the world leader in the tactical segment. The VTOL UAS was developed according to the equirements and standards of manned aviation.
