Maritime Surveillance Service Delivered via EMSA
The Royal Danish Navy is operating the Schiebel CAMCOPTER S-100 UAS for maritime surveillance. The service is delivered by the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA).
Stationed in northern Denmark, the remotely-piloted helicopter UAS supports the Navy, alongside other national authorities, in conducting various maritime surveillance tasks, including detection, verification and the provision of information on potential oil spills and discharges at sea, for instance. All data gathered from the flights is shared live through the EMSA RPAS Data Centre, allowing users to monitor any unusual activity at sea with a potentially harmful impact on the safety and security of persons and vessels in the area, or affecting the environment itself. The S-100’s multiple state-of-the-art sensors significantly enhance the Navy’s maritime surveillance capabilities.
Hans Georg Schiebel, Chairman of Schiebel Group, commented, “Schiebel has been successfully working with EMSA in several European countries so far. We are proud that the S-100 is making such an essential impact, now also for the Royal Danish Navy.”
