Raytheon Australia will bring in its 20 year pedigree as a trusted, prime systems integrator across
multiple domains.

Fabian Knechtl, Managing Director of Schiebel Pacific, said: “We are very confident that
the capability of the CAMCOPTER® S-100, together with the proposed integration into
existing ADF systems, is the best solution for the Australian Army. Additionally, Raytheon
Australia’s pedigree and experience in sovereign complex systems integration makes
them the perfect partner and our teaming will assure efficient and timely delivery to the
ADF. We are fully committed to the Australian Government’s policy on Australian Industry
Capability (AIC) and have already started the ‘transfer of knowledge’ to our local entity
and our partners. Over the next several years, Schiebel Pacific will become known as a
highly capable Australian UAS provider.”
