Boeing recently demonstrated the capability of S-100 Camcopter unmanned air vehicles to delivered supplies to U.S. Army troops.

The S-100 Camcopter delivered supplies to U.S. Army troops, the first time an autonomous air vehicle with vertical takeoff and landing resupplied Army troops.
The Boeing S-100 Camcopter variant, produced in partnership with Austria’s Schiebel Industries, is a highly expeditionary Group 3 vertical take-off and landing unmanned aerial system.

A Boeing team flew the S-100 on 31 missions, delivering 726 kg (1,600lb) of “simulated blood and ammunition” via a cargo winch during the military exercise.

The unmanned helicopter flew the missions autonomously.
