Schiebel Expands UAS Production in Abu Dhabi

Our Bureau - : Feb 6, 2024 - : 7:55 pm

Following the award of a contract for the supply of the CAMCOPTER S-300 Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) Unmanned Air System (UAS) for the South Korean Navy, Schiebel is expanding the company’s Abu Dhabi facility to accommodate further development and production of this long-endurance, heavy-lift-capable UAS.

“Having been at the forefront of VTOL UAS development and delivery for the last 20 years, Schiebel continues to listen to the market needs and by adding the S-300 to our product portfolio we are filling the gap for a long-endurance, heavy-lift UAS,” said Hans Georg Schiebel, Chairman of the Schiebel Group. “Given our successful history in the region, our Abu Dhabi location is the logical choice for executing this exciting project,” he added.

With its multi-sensor capability, the new UAS is designed for Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition, and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) missions, such as submarine detection and early threat warning of missiles, as well as resupply missions requiring heavy lift over long distances in complex terrain. The S-300 is also capable of carrying up to 250 kg of payloads.

Schiebel made its breakthrough into the global UAS market in 2005, with the UAE being the launch customer for the CAMCOPTER S-100. As such, the Middle East region has always been a major focus for the company.
