Schiebel Elektronische Geraete GmbH CAMCOPTER S-100 unmanned aircraft system has completed a series of trials for the French MoD procurement agency DGA (Direction Générale de l’Armement).

Under a leasing contract and operated by DGA personnel, the CAMCOPTER S-100 flew more than 50 missions under various conditions and at different places, day and night, with a total of 150 flight hours.

Schiebel is teamed with Thales Aerospace, Thales Optronique and DCNS for future French UAS (Unmanned Aircraft System) programmes and is in the process of responding to a Request for Information (RFI) issued by the DGA for the procurement of a VTOL UAV (Vertical Take-Off and Landing Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) to be operated onboard the French Navy DCNS built La Fayette Class frigates in 2011.
