Schiebel’s Camcopter S-100 has recently demonstrated manned-unmanned teaming (MUM-T) with an Airbus Helicopters H145.

The two aircraft jointly flew different MUM-T scenarios including the detection of objects hidden in places not accessible by traditional helicopters.

The S-100 was controlled and piloted by an operator sitting in the H145. During the flights, control was also temporarily handed over to a ground-based control station by the pilot to simulate the return of the manned helicopter for refuelling.
