Schiebel has partnered with French Shipbuilder, DCNS to deploy its in-production Camcopter S-100 unmanned air system (UAS) onboard a new Gowind Class offshore patrol vessel (OPV), L Adroit.

The OPV, being built for the French Navy, was launched in May this year and is the first vessel to be designed to carry a UAS.

The S-100 has already successfully demonstrated its maritime capabilities on six different classes of vessel in a variety of challenging conditions.

The UAS will begin its trials later in 2011 with the OPV before being handed over to the French Navy at the end of the year.
