Schiebel, Diehl Defence renew S-100 agreement

27th September 2016 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Schiebel has renewed its teaming agreement with German company Diehl Defence for the marketing of the Camcopter S-100 within the German market, the company announced on 26 September.

Diehl Defence’s experience lies in the integration of different defence systems and surveillance equipment into German Navy vessels while Schiebel produces the UAS.

Schiebel completed flight trials on board the German Navy’s K130 Class Corvettes Braunschweig and Magdeburg in the Baltic Sea in 2008. The S-100 completed more than 130 take-off and landings in a total flight time of just 20 hours.

Since then several developments have since taken place to enhance the UAS further, particularly in the naval market with the availability of a new heavy fuel engine.

Helmut Rauch, member of the division board of Diehl Defence, said: ‘The renewal of the teaming agreement is the result of the longstanding cooperation between Diehl Defence and Schiebel. We consider Schiebel a highly competent partner and believe the Camcopter S-100 is the best possible product for all remotely piloted aircraft operations of the German Navy.’
