Schiebel CAMCOPTER® S-100 UAS – AIRICA – Detect and Avoid Trials (The Netherlands)


Fundamentally and in simple terms it’s future-proofing the system It’s making certain that as new and evolving markets appear we are in a position with the right technology at the right place to satisfy them and key amongst that in order to
enlarge are possible opportunities is the ability to be able to do detect to
avoid and hence migrate from restricted airspace into the far greater airspace that’ll become available and so this work has been absolutely fundamental in us achieving those first tentative but very positive footsteps along that journey About two years ago we started this project and we really wanted to have a project that is an application that we not only do some
scientific work but something that is really an application and it helps the
people who want to fly with unmanned systems I watched the project for a long time even
from the beginning because we have a very strong collaboration between NLR
and DLR and so I was able to monitor it and I’m really impressed in what a short
time this has been achieved It’s been strong work, it’s been robust work, it’s
work that I think we are jointly proud of and so from my perspective I think it’s been
a success I think we’ve got out of it what we expected to, challenges as well
I think we’ve got a good, strong relationship I think we understand each
other’s strengths and weaknesses and I think this is a partnership that will
succeed not only now but in the future I’m very proud of what we have seen today because the Netherlands Coast guard also provided with some assets in this test and in the future we hope to use assets
like these UAVs for our operations for example for
search and rescue operations and it’s very important for us because I see that
a lot of operations or tests are being done by UAVs but they all
test payloads, equipments, cameras and stuff like that and what we would like to have in the future is regulations that we can use these kind of UAVs in non segregated airspace and I think this will be a big step forward These RPAS platforms are really here to come and they are to stay and they won’t go away so this was was a necessary step
thank you very much
