Article Headlines

  • Schiebel and its partner Nordic Unmanned have successfully completed a two-day test of the sniffer capability onboard the Camcopter S-100 UAS in the shipping lane outside Gniben, Denmark
  • The entities note that ships operating in Europe’s busiest sea routes are allowed to emit exhaust fumes with a Sulphur oxide content limited to no more than 0.1 percent
  • One potential option to enforce this International Maritime Organization (IMO) 2020 regulation is using UAS such as the Camcopter S-100 equipped with a Sulphur sniffer
  • The UAS measures the Sulphur emissions by flying through the ship’s exhaust plume, and identifies the ships using its Automatic Identification System (AIS)
  • During the trial, the Camcopter S-100 performed two successful flights of about four hours, providing compliant measurements of Sulphur emissions
  • The Camcopter S-100 was also equipped with an L3 Harris Wescam MX-10 real-time Electro-Optical/Infra-Red (EO/IR) camera
