Schiebel was founded in 1951 and has about 300 employees worldwide and an annual total revenue of €65 Mio. Their main focus is in the development and production of mine detectors and unmanned high-tech helicopters. Since 20 years they are collecting experience and know-how in the construction and development of unmanned helicopters an the needed subcomponents and control algorithms. 80% of the CAMCOPTER® S-100 is made of fiber reinforced materials, meaning they have a complete manufacturing facility in Wiener Neustadt for composites with cutters, autoclaves, and mechanical processing for the manufacturing of prototypes but also for mass production. Schiebel uses modern FEM software tools for the simulation of components. In collaboration with EASA, they want to implement the legal foundation for the civil use of the camcopter also in densly populated areas in the EU in the following years. The results of the BeyondInspection project helps Schiebel to optimize the reliability of the CAMCOPTER® S-100, which is necessary for a successful approval.
Schiebel is a worldwide leading manufacturer of unmanned aircrafts with autonomous control (UAV). The specifications of the CAMCOPTER® S-100 and its possibility to start and land vertically (VTOL) allows a flexible and mobile use in a vast area of application. The importance of this possibilities will further increase, especially in the civil market. Schiebel also holds around 20 patents for VTOL-UAVs.
The following areas of expertise are available at Schiebel
• Mechanical, electrical and hardware & software development and documentation according to international standards.
• Mechanical factory for the fabrication of prototypes an mass production of CFRP - samples
• Ground and flight tests under real conditions
• Ultrasonic measurement device and pulse thermography (edevis, PTvis 3000 in the future)
Schiebel also showed in the past, that they are capable of leading and contributing to such research projects and to use the results in future products.
