SEA 129 Phase 5 programme for the Royal Australian Navy.
aerobd.news : Schiebel Pacific welcomes the decision of the Commonwealth of Australia to speed up the provision of its UAS capability by initiating a single source acquisition of the CAMCOPTER® S-100. This will enable the RAN to accelerate the capability acquisition they need and together with our local partners, we are committed to deliver the best UAS solution for the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). The offered Maritime Uncrewed Aircraft System (MUAS) builds on the capability that has been provided by the proven CAMCOPTER® S-100 air vehicle currently in service with the RAN and is expected to create about 100 new Australian jobs. The design, development, manufacture, integration and support of the system will all be undertaken in Australia.
