World leading UAV

The S-100 navigates automatically via pre-programmed GPS waypoints or can be operated directly with a pilot control unit. Missions are planned and controlled via a simple point-and-click graphical user interface. High-definition payload imagery is transmitted to the control station in real time. Using "fly-by-wire" technology controlled by redundant flight computers, the UAV can complete its mission automatically in the most complex of electromagnetic environments. Its carbon fiber and titanium fuselage provides capacity for a wide range of payload / endurance combinations.


Maritime operations

The S-100 is a significant force multiplier for maritime commanders, extending the reach of the ship beyond the horizon. It greatly improves the decision makers' situational understanding and operational responsiveness. The S-100 unmanned helicopter has successfully completed extensive shipborne trials and is deployed with various navies worldwide

Payload capabilities

The CAMCOPTER S-100 features platform and payload growth capabilities – with two payload bays, an auxiliary electronics bay, as well as two side payload hard points and the ability to carry underslung loads. The maximum payload weight is 50 kg (110 lbs).

The CAMCOPTER S-100 is able to carry multiple sensors, enabling customers to gather images with an EO/IR camera, detect and identify electronic signatures with ESM systems and use SAR radar simultaneously in real-time with only one system.

Electro-Optical/Infrared (EO/IR) gimbals provide advanced wide-area situational awareness and intelligence gathering through collection, identification, categorization and geo-location of static and moving objects of interest. It provides real-time, high-definition video to commanders and decision makers for uninterrupted surveillance of borders, urban areas, activity and events both by day and night.
