Two of The Most Common Ways to Fly Join Forces to Develop Wireless Connectivity

Airbus Helicopters and Schiebel Camcopter have teamed up to create a newer way of connecting both unmanned and manned networks to work alongside one another.  According to both companies they are the first to develop what is known as the Manned Unmanned Teaming (MUM-T) that enables its versatility to be at a “Level Five.” The project was sponsored by innovative companies such as Austrian Armaments and Defense Technology Agency.

The aircrafts that have been chosen to participate in such demonstrations are Airbus Helicopters H145 which was operated by a pilot and Schiebel Camcopter S-100 unmanned air system (UAS).  The goal of this operation was to display the transfer of wireless connectivity   from the piloted aircraft to the unmanned device.

The operator in the H145 aircraft and was able to control the unmanned aircraft to perform tasks such as :

  • takeoff and landing
  • transferred to the ground-based operator to simulate refueling
  • and was able to maneuver the device to reenact the detection of items hidden in places not accessible by traditional helicopters.

Upon completing the test trials, the operator found that troubles they experienced were the transfer interference and electromagnetic compatibility

Program manager at Airbus Helicopter, Mark Henning, would like to attest that their project is allowing them to venture into a new type of helicopter excursions never before possible.

Smaller UAS with vertical takeoff and aircraft landing capabilities can, for example, fly around obstacles, such as trees or buildings, closer than a helicopter could. They are able to explore unknown territory and deliver information to the manned helicopter crew that is operating from a safe position and that can then step in with that helicopter’s superior effects, having received a clear picture from the UAS.
