Schiebel Pacific Pty Ltd is the local subsidiary of the Schiebel Group, which has built an international reputation for producing quality products, backed by exceptional after sales service and support. The Australian company, which develops, tests and produces the CAMCOPTER® S-100 Unmanned Air System, was founded in 2018 and is based in Yerriyong, near Nowra in New South Wales.
In late 2017, Schiebel Group supplied the S-100 to meet the Royal Australian Navy’s interim Vertical Takeoff and Landing UAS requirement. The contract included three years of support services and also fulfilled a request for tender for Navy Minor Project 1942, which sought to procure a “proven” VTOL Maritime Tactical Unmanned Aircraft System – Interim Capability and associated engineering and logistics support for the RAN. Recently, Schiebel successfully completed the acceptance tests for the RAN of its new Schiebel-designed heavy fuel S2 engine for its S-100, further increasing the overall capability of the system.
Schiebel Pacific demonstrates a commitment to local industry and is ideally placed to support Raytheon Australia with LAND 129 Phase 3. The Australian base focuses on contract management, service provision, production and maintenance of the S-100, providing the Pacific region with a permanent and comprehensive programme, logistics and sales hub.
