During the entire Olympics Games – the XXII Winter Games and Paralympics – the CAMCOPTER® S-100 UAS Unmanned Aircraft System (in cooperation with JSC Gorizont Russia: Gorizont Air S-100) is operating in Sochi.
The CAMCOPTER® S-100 UAS is surveilling the area within approx. 50 kilometres from the seaside around the Olympic village. Here again, the S-100 confirms its reputation as ultramodern multi-purpose unmanned helicopter system which neither requires a takeoff strip nor supporting launch or recovery equipment, and can be actively used both land and ship based.
The system is designed for mobile and flexible implementation, which guarantees fast deployment. The technical characteristics of the system allow for the completion of necessary tasks within restricted space, such as in mountainous areas, and from maritime platforms or other structures.
During the entire XXII Olympic Winter Games all the information from the S-100 unmanned helicopter was received in real-time, a feature that is made possible by means of interfacing of the UAV system with the unified safety control system of the Olympic Winter Games, and from March 7th the Paralympic Games.
