Schiebel successfully conducted a drone search and rescue in the Arctic

Schiebel and Andøya Space Defence have successfully tested the functions of the CAMCOPTER S-100 unmanned helicopter drone for search and rescue on the coast guard KV Nordkapp ship in Norwegian waters.

The purpose of the test is to demonstrate the search and rescue (SAR) and maritime surveillance capabilities of the CAMCOPTER S-100 unmanned helicopter in Arctic environmental conditions above 75 degrees north latitude. The week-long experiment was achieved through the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs' "Arctic 2030" plan, which aims to maintain Norway's interests in the extreme north.

The purpose is to prove that UAS is an ideal complement to manned helicopters, greatly enhancing search and rescue operations in this remote area of the world. CAMCOPTER S-100 proves that it can operate in severe weather conditions, and manned helicopters may face higher risks. UAS is equipped with Trakka TC-300 EO/IR sensor, Overwatch Imaging PT-8N Oceanwatch, Radionor antenna as an additional data link for video feed transmission, and automatic identification system (AIS) receiver.

Hans Georg Schiebel, Chairman of the Schiebel Group, said: “CAMC OPTER S-100 is very suitable for offshore operations, including in the Arctic or Antarctic. It has been proven many times that it can operate at temperatures as low as -40 degrees Celsius and harsh weather conditions. Operation. We are proud to have successfully demonstrated these extraordinary capabilities to the Norwegian Coast Guard and the Navy."
