Patria, March 30, 2017 - Patria and Schiebel have been working together to integrate Patria’s sophisticated Compact Airborne Networking Data Link (CANDL) communication network onto the Camcopter S-100 Unmanned Air System (UAS).

The two European companies’ joint effort is the first step of an ongoing program of work examining how the Camcopter S-100 can be deployed to directly support manned helicopter operations.

Patria’s CANDL provides a solid backbone to explore the benefits of Manned-UnManned Teaming (MUM-T) operations, where the combined strengths of each air asset can be optimized to increase overall situational awareness and enhance decision making.

“The need for networking between several assets was one of the main design drivers for CANDL. MUM-T operations are the latest trend benefiting from CANDL’s unparalleled network characteristics”, says Simo Mäkipaja, Senior Vice President, Business Development at Patria, Systems Business Unit.

“Using the unmanned element of a MUM-T operation to provide both the forward and higher altitude view will help to keep pilots and the manned assets safe as well as improve overall mission effectiveness”, adds Schiebel’s Chief Technical Officer Chris Day.

Schiebel’s Camcopter S-100 Unmanned Air System (UAS) is an operationally proven capability for military and civilian applications. The Vertical Takeoff and Landing (VTOL) UAS requires no prepared area or supporting equipment to enable launch and recovery. It operates in day and night, under adverse weather conditions, with a beyond line-of-sight capability out to 200 km, over land and sea. Its carbon fiber and titanium fuselage provides capacity for a wide range of payload/endurance combinations up to a service ceiling of 18,000 ft.

In a typical configuration, the Camcopter S-100 carries a 75 lbs/34 kg payload up to 10 hours and is powered with AVGas or JP-5 heavy fuel. High definition payload imagery is transmitted to the control station in real time. In addition to its standard GPS waypoint or manual navigation, the S-100 can successfully operate in environments where GPS is not available, with missions planned and controlled via a simple point-and-click graphical user interface. The high-tech unmanned helicopter is backed by Schiebel’s excellent customer support and training services.
