CAMCOPTER on BPC DIXMUDE with MX-10

Successfully completed qualification flights for French Navy

From 29 May to 3 June 2017, Schiebel’s CAMCOPTER S-100 Unmanned Air System (UAS) successfully completed qualification flights for the French Navy. The flight trials were performed from the deck of the Bâtiment de Projection et de Commandement (BPC) DIXMUDE, the newest of the French Navy’s three MISTRAL-class amphibious assault ships. The French fleet is currently undergoing a modernisation process within which Schiebel participates in flight trials in order to confirm the Ship Helicopter Operating Limits (SHOL) and to qualify the CAMCOPTER S-100’s integration onto the BPC.

An L3 Wescam MX-10 was used to transmit daylight and infrared data. Throughout the trials the system was operated independently by the French Navy CEPA/10s crew.
