Camcopter in MUM-T development

3rd April 2017 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Schiebel is looking to develop the Camcopter S-100 UAS' manned-unmanned teaming (MUM-T) capabilities with the integration of a new datalink, the company announced on 20 March.

The Compact Airborne Networking Data Link (CANDL) is being provided by Patria as part of work being carried out by the two companies to examine how the Camcopter UAS can be deployed to directly support manned helicopter operations.

Patria's CANDL provides a networking backbone that will allow manned and unmanned air assets to share data that increases overall situational awareness and enhances operational decision making.

Chris Day, chief technical officer, Schiebel, said: 'Using the unmanned element of a MUM-T operation to provide both the forward and higher altitude view will help to keep pilots and the manned assets safe as well as improve overall mission effectiveness.'
