Schiebel and Areté Associates have presented the CAMCOPTER S-100 Unmanned Air System (UAS) combined with Areté’s Pushbroom Imaging Lidar for Littoral Surveillance (PILLS) sensor to the US Navy’s Office of Naval Research (ONR). The presentation took place in the scope of a combined demonstration sponsored by the ONR on a commercial vessel off the coast of Pensacola, Florida. According to Schiebel’s respective press release, PILLS enables hydrographic mapping of ocean littoral spaces with a low size, weight, and power sensor that easily integrates into the S-100. PILLS has multiple military and commercial applications.
