Royal Australian Navy Camcopter S-100 Contract


Camcopter S-100 Selected by Royal Australian Navy

The Royal Australian Navy has selected the Schiebel Camcopter S-100 to provide a UAS capability and three years of follow-on contractor logistics support

The Navy issued an international Request for Tender (RfT) in late February 2016 for a UAS capability. Schiebel submitted what it called a “comprehensive proposal” to deliver the latest version of the Camcopter S-100.

After thorough proposal evaluation and completing negotiations, the contract was signed at the end of December 2016.

Hans Georg Schiebel, owner of Schiebel Group, said: “We feel most honored by the Royal Australian Navy’s decision to purchase our CAMCOPTER® S-100 UAS. We are sure that the S-100 will prove to be an effective asset that will set a new benchmark for UAS capability.”

Schiebel says the S-100 has now successfully completed missions on over 30 different ships on all the world’s oceans, in every environment from the tropics to the Arctic.
