Schiebel has demonstrated the capabilities of its CAMCOPTER® S-100 UAV to the Hellenic Navy. Stationed on board of the ELLI class frigate AIGAION (F-460) to the West of Crete, the S-100 showcased in its range, endurance and speed, as well as its maritime surveillance and detection capabilities, during a one-week trial. For the demonstration flights, the CAMCOPTER® S-100 was equipped with a Trakka TC-300 EO/IR sensor and a Shine Micro Automatic Identification System (AIS) receiver. The scenarios alternated day and night take-offs and landings. They included cooperation with other Hellenic Navy vessels, maritime traffic monitoring and coast observation.
