A fleet of Schiebel’s Camcopter S-100 Unmanned Air Systems (UAS) has been commissioned by MDA, a Maxar Technologies company, to fulfill a contract with an international customer.
Schiebel’s Camcopter S-100 UAS was chosen by MDA for its impressive track record of providing critical support in sea- and land-based intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions.
As a vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft, the S-100 has a relatively small logistical footprint, which allows for flexible and rapid deployment.
By day and night, the UAS functions as a platform capable of carrying a wide range of high-end payloads.
MDA offers a turnkey service to an unnamed international customer, including responsibility for the acquisition of the fleet and its required infrastructure, training, airworthiness, logistics, supply chain management, maintenance and all flight operations.
“We are honoured that MDA has chosen our best-in-class Camcopter S-100 to fulfill the requirements of this prestigious contract,” said Hans Georg Schiebel, chairman of the Schiebel Group. “We are excited about this partnership and look forward to the opportunity to once again demonstrate the proven capabilities of the S-100 and its unique suitability for ISR missions.”
