I-Master-equipped Camcopter S-100 conducts trials

Schiebel has announced that its Camcopter S-100 UAV has conducted flight trials equipped with a Thales I-Master radar system at the Schiebel test facility in Wiener Neustadt, Austria. The flights, which took place on 7 February, successfully proved both sensor performance and the stability of data transfer between radar operator and the airborne I-Master.

I-Master is a Ground Moving Target Indication (GMTI) and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), developed to provide the capability for all-weather surveillance, detection and recognition of targets over large areas at long stand-off ranges. I-Master has been designed for easy installation with ‘plug & play’ integration. It weighs 30kg, and has the same footprint as a standard 15’’ EO/IR sensor turret, allowing simple air worthiness and certification.
