Thales and Scheibel Complete S-100 UAS Flight Trials
- Thales UK and Schiebel have conducted UK flight trials in August 2021. Operating off the North Wales coastline, the trials demonstrated how a navy warship can benefit from the intelligence gathered over an extended operating range, to prevail in a maritime or littoral operation.
- The S-100 has been fitted with an integrated sensor suite comprising of the Thales I-Master radar operating with maritime modes, the IAI POP ULTRA EO/IR sensor pod, IFF transceiver and AIS receiver.
- The sensor suite data was fused together using the CarteNav AIMS Mission System to provide wide area radar coverage to compliment a ships radar, and rapid identification by dynamic tasking to position the platform for imagery / video evidence.
- To complete the trial, intelligence was delivered into the Thales TACTICOS Combat Mission System using a Digital Supervisor / OARIS bridge, proving both data integration and CMS level dynamic tasking of the S-100.
