Schiebel Elektronische Geräte and Selex successfully flew the PicoSAR surveillance sensor June 30 aboard a Camcopter S-100 UAV, giving it an all-weather, long-range, ground-mapping and moving-target indication capability. The trial flight focused on the synthetic aperture radar (SAR) of the PicoSAR and enabled mapping of the area near the Schiebel production facility in Wiener Neustadt, Austria. The Camcopter operated at altitudes up to 3,000 feet and PicoSAR was controlled via a datalink from the ground with imagery transmitted back to the ground station.
