Camcopter S-100 Flies Again at IDEX in Abu Dhabi
The 2013 IDEX International Defence Exhibition features an active participation of Schiebel, as the company underlines its continued strong market position with the proven CAMCOPTER® S-100 (UAE Armed Forces designation Al Saber) Unmanned Air System (UAS). Schiebel’s presence during the biennial trade show includes daily flight demonstrations, integrated with other air traffic, directly in the city of Abu Dhabi and carried out by Schiebel’s local cooperation partner ADASI (Abu Dhabi Automated Systems Investments), a Tawazun subsidiary.
The CAMCOPTER® S-100 (UAE Armed Forces designation Al Saber) already demonstrated its proven and reliable flight characteristics during IDEX 2011 and again convinces the audience of its unmatched capabilities at the daily dynamic displays of this year’s IDEX Defence Exhibition from 17 to 21 February 2013.
“ADASI has been supporting deployment of the Al-Saber system on a variety of missions benefitting from the versatility of the S-100” declared Ali Al Yafei, CEO of ADASI. ”The experience acquired by ADASI with the S-100 enables us to offer S-100 services in the region, and permit customers to ramp up quickly in their mission, leveraging on the cumulated experience of ADASI’s team.”
"The Middle East and North African (MENA) UAS market is very strong, we expect the demand for UAVs to continue to increase," said Hans Georg Schiebel, Chairman of the Schiebel Group. "Schiebel's commitment to the region is reflected by the continued growth of our partnership with ADASI - providing superior value and the most complete line of high-technology unmanned aviation products and services."
