After successful operations in 2021, the CAMCOPTER S-100 is once again supporting the Romanian Border Police, Schiebel writes in a press release. The operations started in March and are scheduled to continue until August 2022. The Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) service is delivered by the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA).

Stationed in Mangalia, the CAMCOPTER S-100 supports the Romanian authorities in carrying out general coast guard functions. These include conducting day-to-day monitoring and surveillance of all shipping, including port security, as well as responding to any search and rescue, accident and disaster calls. The Romanian Border Police planned 50 missions during the first two months of operations and the S-100 has flown more than 170 hours so far, Schiebel emphasises.

The S-100 executes these various tasks equipped with:

  • an L3 Wescam Electro-Optical/Infra-Red (EO/IR) camera gimbal
  • an Overwatch Imaging PT-8 OCEANWATCH
  • a Becker Avionics BD406 Emergency Beacon Locator
  • an Automatic Identification System receiver
