25th May 2017 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Schiebel’s Camcopter S-100 UAS has completed a series of flight trials at Andøya Test Center (ATC) in Norway, the company announced on 23 May.

The trials were held for representatives of the Norwegian Coastguard, Royal Norwegian Navy, Royal Norwegian Air Force, Norwegian Coastal Administration and Police Directorate.

The event, which took place in northern Norway nearly 300kms north of the Arctic Circle, saw the S-100 perform a series of demonstration flights.

The UAS took off from Andøya Air Base and demonstrated its coastal patrol capabilities. The UAS captured real-time data with its L3 Wescam MX-10 EO/IR payload, tracking vessels and finding persons gone overboard.

In a separate exercise the UAS presented its range clearance capability. During this exercise, an area of around 2,500 km² was scanned for vessels.
