agreement in August of 2009 to pursue marketing and support opportunities for Schiebel's
CAMCOPTER(r) S-100 in the United States and certain other markets.
In the fight against Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), Schiebel has been awarded a sub
contract by the U.S. technology company, CenTauri Solutions, to provide its CAMCOPTER(r) S-
100 UAV as the air vehicle for a counter IED project known as "Yellow Jacket". This is Schiebel's
first sale for use of its product by the U.S. DoD.
Date Posted: 30-Oct-2009 Schiebel breaks into US market with Camcopter deal Georg Mader CorrespondentViennaGareth Jennings Jane's Aviation Desk EditorLondonSchiebel Industries has secured its first sale to the US Department of Defense: a deal that follows efforts by the Austrian unmanned aerial vehicle specialist to break into the world'slargest defence market. It emerged on 26 October that the Schiebel Camcopter S-100 rotary-winged unmanned aerialvehicle (UAV) has been selected as the platform for the US Army's 'Yellow Jacket' counter-improvised explosive device (IED) project. Schiebel has been subcontracted by US company CenTauri Solutions to provide the vehicle tocarry its high-definition electro-optical sensor combined with an unintentionalelectromagnetic emissions detector to locate buried IEDs. Under the USD11 million contract the UAV company will support the US Department ofDefense's (DoD's) Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization (JIEDDO) - ofwhich 'Yellow Jacket' is a part. 'Yellow Jacket' provides US and coalition patrols and convoys with technology to identify IED threats.Under the project, the US Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), in Rome, New York, has contracted CenTauri Solutions to examine the feasibility of using a vertical take-off andlanding (VTOL) UAVs to detect IEDs from the air. The accord comes after Boeing and Schiebel announced on 11 August that they had signed ateaming agreement relating to the latter's Camcopter S-100. The accord aimed to fill a gap in Boeing's range of UAVs and related capabilities. The agreement is not understood by Jane's to be directly related to the 26 October deal with CenTauri Solutions, but instead indicates Schiebel's strategic intentions.

Looks more like the PETA concept described as the "Land Based Variant" in the video, rather than the LAMV, for the AMC-X and JVHL programs with a 50-to-60,000 lb. payload and a 540 n mile unrefueled radius.
Grey Havoc said:On the other hand, the recent speculation on Yellow Jacket has leaning towards a rotorcraft.
