The Icelandic Coast Guard has deployed the Camcopter S-100 to improve its maritime surveillance. This unmanned aerial vehicle will allow the Coast Guard to obtain better coverage of its large Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).
The Camcopter S-100 is able to identify vessels and activities of interest at a much greater range than normal, thereby substantially extending the ship’s situational awareness. The activities include fisheries inspection and control, maritime safety, ship and port security, environmental protection and response, as well as supporting Search and Rescue (SAR) when needed, reports Navalnews.com.
So far, the Camcopter S-100 has demonstrated a high level of performance.
