S-100

An expeditionary UAS for challenging ground and maritime missions.

Overview

The Boeing S-100 CAMCOPTER variant, produced in partnership with Schiebel Industries, is a highly expeditionary Group 3 vertical take-off and landing unmanned aerial system.

Mission

Operating Under Difficult Circumstances

It’s a difficult challenge when already operating in a difficult environment: No runway … no space for equipment … very little time or personnel to launch an unmanned asset.

From ship to shore, certain missions require extreme operational flexibility to deliver results – from intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance to cargo and re-supply efforts and more.

The Boeing S-100 CAMCOPTER – a rotorcraft UAS that can launch in 15 minutes even in the most rugged environments – can help solve some of the most difficult challenges.
