Schiebel Elektronische Geraete GmbH CAMCOPTER S-100 unmanned air system (UAS) completed qualification flights for the French Navy from 29 May to 3 June 2017.
The flight trials were performed from the deck of the Mistrall-class FS Dixmude projection and command ship or BPC (Bâtiment de Projection et de Commandement).
During the flight demonstrations in the Western Mediterranean the CAMCOPTER S-100 drone conducted around 30 takeoffs and landings within a total of 15 flight hours during day and night. A L3 Wescam’s MX-10 was used to transmit daylight and infrared data. Throughout the trials the system was operated independently by the French Navy’s CEPA/10s crew.
