Schiebel CAMCOPTER® S-100 UAS - Maritime (MOAS)

After the successful 2014 and 2015 operations, Schiebel’s
CAMCOPTER® S-100 continues its substantial support of the Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS), a global search-and-rescue charity organization.

For the third time MOAS and Schiebel will join forces in order to help refugees in distress at sea. In their concerted rescue operations over the past two years more than ten thousand men, women and children could be saved from a drowning death on their way from North Africa to the shores of Europe. The impressive success of this humanitarian mission, to a large extent, is owed to the support of Schiebel’s CAMCOPTER® S-100.

Besides its takeoff and landing capability on the 40-meter-long MOAS ship MY Phoenix, the SCHIEBEL CAMCOPTER® S-100 provides real-time daylight and infrared video which enables the MOAS crew to precisely locate and rescue persons in emergency situations and provide them with medical aid from their ship-borne station. Especially over long distances beyond horizon, in rough sea conditions and at night, the SCHIEBEL CAMCOPTER® S-100 Unmanned Air System significantly increases chances to find and identify small ships, thus saving the lives of thousands of migrants.
