Camcopter integrated with French Navy vessel
Naval Group carried out the necessary modification of the ship in spring 2019, after an operational two-year testing phase to ensure interoperability between the vessel and the UAS. The video output from the S-100 was integrated in the onboard combat system.
The Camcopter S-100 will give the carrier increased ISR capabilities. The UAS can operate day and night and can carry multiple payloads with a combined weight of up to 50kg. With minimal logistical footprint and size it is well suited to maritime operations.
The French Armament General Directorate managed all technical stages of the integration project, in close collaboration with the Naval Group and Schiebel Group.
