Wescam Mx-10 EO/IR payload flying on the Camcopter S-100 UAV

Schiebel Aircraft GmbH and Wescam L-3 Communications are delighted to announce the first flight of a CAMCOPTER® S-100 UAV with the Wescam MX-10 EO/IR payload installed. This adds another sensor capability to the successful and proven CAMCOPTER® S-100 UAS (Unmanned Air System).

After just a few days of installation and integration activities of a joint L-3 Wescam Schiebel team, the MX-10 flew successfully at a test range near the Schiebel production facility in Wiener Neustadt, Austria. The trial focused on the advanced EO/IR capabilities of the MX-10 and enabled detailed observation of the surrounding area. The MX-10 was controlled via the datalink with real-time live imagery transmitted successfully back to the ground control station.

"UAVs are taking on more demanding roles as their maturity increases , said Paul Jennison, Vice President Business Development, L-3 Wescam and adding sensors like MX-10 with outstanding stabilization and HD capability will further increase their utility. We are really pleased to have achieved this milestone with Schiebel, as the CAMCOPTER® S-100 is clearly a leader in this class of tactical UAVs .

The MX-10 is a radically different EO/IR sensor with the benefits of an all-in-one design and integrated vibration mounts allowing for even more compact integration, and consequently provides excellent results. said Neil Hunter, Sales Director, Schiebel, The CAMCOPTER® S-100 is generating a great deal of interest around the world and we see the addition of the MX-10 as another high-performing payload for our customers to choose from."
