Schiebel delivers Camcopter S-100s to Jordan
Following contract award in July 2010, Schiebel announced delivery of two Camcopter S-100 Unmanned Air Systems (UAS) to the King Abdullah Design and Development Bureau (KADDB) of Jordan.
The UAS will form a key part of the Jordanian Armed Forces (JAF) Reconnaissance Squadron, as KADDB is an independent Governmental military-civilian agency existing within the JAF tasked with operating to best commercial practices with predetermined performance targets.
The Camcopter S-100 was chosen following a comprehensive evaluation process by KADDB on behalf of the Jordan Armed Forces and the Royal Jordanian Air Force to ensure it could meet all of their demanding mission requirements.
The helicopter UAS will be primarily used for surveillance, intelligence and reconnaissance missions, as all will be equipped with L-3 Wescam MX-10 EO/IR payloads, offering a new dimension in capability for the Jordanian Armed Forces. Under the terms of the contract, Schiebel will also provide in-country technical support, maintenance and operator and maintainer training.
