PENSACOLA, Fla. Schiebel Aircraft and Areté Associates showcased the CAMCOPTER S-100 unmanned aerial system (UAS) combined with Areté’s Pushbroom Imaging Lidar for Littoral Surveillance (PILLS) sensor to the U.S. Navy’s Office of Naval Research (ONR).

In a combined demonstration sponsored by the ONR on a commercial vessel, Schiebel and Areté demonstrated the CAMCOPTER S-100 and its capabilities, as well as Areté’s Push-broom Imaging Lidar for Littoral Surveillance (PILLS) system.

According to officials, PILLS is designed to enable hydrographic mapping of ocean littoral spaces with a low size, weight, and power (SWaP) sensor that is intended to be easily integratd into the S-100.
