Schiebel signs a contract with French DGA for lease of its Camcopter S-100

Following the success with the first UAS ever to fly at the Paris Air Show in June 2009, Schiebel has now won a contract with the Direction générale de l'armement (DGA).

The CAMCOPTER® S-100 will be leased for a selection of comprehensive experimental trials in France by the French Army at a military camp, during a military exercise, as well as two weeks of demanding trials at a non European location, and on behalf of the French Navy at a Navy base. The trials will take place during the first half of 2010.

The Goal of these trials is it to assess the advantages of a VTOL (Vertical Takeoff and Landing). In order to fulfill the DGA's requirements, Schiebel has sub-contracted Thales Aeronautical Systems to assist them with the arrangement and organization of the flight and frequency permits. The main payload for these trials will be the Thales Optronics Agile 2 Electro Optical and Infra Red (EO/IR) sensor.
