Schiebel Establishes Australian Base to Serve Pacific Region

(Source: Schiebel Group; issued Sept. 03, 2018)

VIENNA --- Schiebel has founded Schiebel Pacific Pty Ltd (SPL) to provide the Pacific region with a permanent and comprehensive programme, logistics and sales hub.

The Schiebel Group, with already established Defence contracts in the region, sees considerable further potential in Australia and in the region at large, and as such is committed to developing a lasting and mutually beneficial presence.

Strategically located between Canberra and Sydney in the Shoalhaven, New South Wales, Schiebel Pacific Pty Ltd (SPL) is perfectly positioned to support and service existing contracts as well as to provide a base for continued growth. This new additional Schiebel company is an essential step to supporting and contributing to local industry, both in the civil and defence sectors, and as such bringing jobs and revenue to the region in the fast-growing market or robotics.

“Establishing a permanent base in Australia, managed and run by Australians, is a logical next step for Schiebel as the Pacific region is of significant strategic interest to us,” notes Hans Georg Schiebel, Chairman of the Schiebel Group. “We already have a strong working relationship with customers in the area and are committed to growing our footprint, delivering outstanding support for our current contracts, providing end-to-end servicing to potential clients, and backing local value creation.”

Founded in 1951, the Vienna-based Schiebel Group focuses on the development, testing and production of state-of-the-art mine detection equipment and the revolutionary CAMCOPTER S-100 Unmanned Air System (UAS). With headquarters in Vienna (Austria), Schiebel now maintains production facilities in Wiener Neustadt (Austria) and Abu Dhabi (UAE), as well as offices in Washington DC (USA), Shoalhaven (Australia) and Phnom Penh (Cambodia).

More like Schiebel establishes Australian Base and claims that it will sell into the Asia Pacific from an Australian centre of excellence. Has absolutely nothing to do with the fact they're trying to sell to the ADF. See also Fincantieri and FREMM / cruise ship modules.



It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.
It is by the juice of sapho that thoughts acquire speed,
the lips acquire stains,
the stains become a warning.
It is by will alone I set my mind in motion

Schiebel Pacific opens new facility and cooperates with Air Affairs Australia

Posted On Wednesday, 26 June 2019 10:24

One year after its foundation, Schiebel Pacific Pty Ltd (SPL) celebrates the opening of its new office and workshop at the Albatross Aviation Technical Park (AATP) in Yerriyong, New South Wales, and announces its cooperation with Air Affairs Australia Pty Ltd (AAA).

This new SPL facility at the AATP firmly establishes Schiebel in Australia and allows for further expansion as the company grows over the next years. It puts SPL in close proximity to its customer, the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) at HMAS Albatross and provides direct access to the airfield. It also facilitates close cooperation with its next-door neighbour and new partner, AAA, who is an established provider of equipment and services to the Australian Defense Force, major government departments and multinational companies.

As part of the memorandum of understanding, SPL and AAA agree to collaborate on the compilation and submission of a request for tender responses for Remotely Piloted Aerial System (RPAS) opportunities in Australia and the Pacific region, as well as the subsequent close cooperation in contract delivery, support and services.

As a mature and proven capability for shipborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR), Schiebels CAMCOPTER S-100 is currently under contract for the Navy Minor Project (NMP) 1942. This evaluation program aims to develop the RANs understanding of the capabilities of an advanced Vertical Takeoff and Landing (VTOL) Tactical Unmanned Air System (TUAS). SPL is working closely with the RAN on achieving all the goals of the project, while simultaneously preparing for the upcoming tenders for LAND and SEA 129.

In parallel, to help develop doctrine and future requirements, as well as gain further insight into future TUAS capabilities and payloads, the Royal Australian Army has contractually leased the CAMCOPTER S-100 to conduct a series of advanced payload evaluations. The Army testing focuses on multiple payloads, including the L3 Wescam
MX-10, ELTA Systems state-of-the-art ELK-7065 Compact Airborne HF COMINT/DF 3D System, Overwatchs Multi-Spectrum Imaging TK-5 and Leonardos PicoSAR radar. The most recent S-100 activities will culminate in the participation in Australias largest joint high-end warfighting exercise, Talisman Sabre 2019. The S-100 provides the Australian Army with the latest VTOL Multi-Role Multi-Environment (MRME) TUAS capability.
