Schiebel CAMCOPTER S-100 Wins Italian Navy Contract

Camcopter S-100 mountsa Wescam MX-10 and a Shine Micro Automatic Identification System, and has the capability to collect time-critical data during uninterrupted periods of up to six hours, and can hover, which provides decision makers with a flexible unique means of collecting and disseminating information. Additionally, the S-100 will be mounted with a Schiebel-designed harpoon system, which supports takeoff and landing in conditions up to Sea State 5.
