Schiebel announced on 9 August that it has successfully completed flight trials of its Camcopter S-100 for the USN.

In a combined demonstration sponsored by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) on a commercial vessel off the coast of Florida, Schiebel and Areté Associates demonstrated the capabilities of S-100 installed with the Areté Pushbroom Imaging Lidar for Littoral Surveillance (PILLS) system for data-gathering missions.

PILLS enables hydrographic mapping of ocean littoral spaces with a low SWaP sensor that ‘easily integrates into the S-100’, Schiebel noted in a statement.

The S-100 recently completed a week-long trial with the Hellenic Navy. In total, the system is in service with 14 navies worldwide.
