Schiebel CAMCOPTER® S-100 UAS - Maritime (MOAS) After the successful 2014 and 2015 operations, Schiebel’s CAMCOPTER® S-100 continues its substantial support of the Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS), a global search-and-rescue charity organization. For the third time MOAS and Schiebel will join forces in order to help refugees in distress at sea. In their concerted rescue operations over the past two years more than ten thousand men, women and children could be saved from a drowning death on their way from North Africa to the shores of Europe. The impressive success of this humanitarian mission, to a large extent, is owed to the support of Schiebel’s CAMCOPTER® S-100. Besides its takeoff and landing capability on the 40-meter-long MOAS ship MY Phoenix, the SCHIEBEL CAMCOPTER® S-100 pro...
The UK's Health Protection Agency (http://www.hpa.org.uk/) has a role to identify and respond to 'health hazards and emergencies caused by infectious disease, hazardous chemicals, poisons or radiation. It also makes sure the nation is ready for future threats to health that could happen naturally, accidentally or deliberately. Part of the role of making sure the nation is ready is to work with the Accident and Emergency Services on regular 'desk top' and 'field' exercises. We were asked to video record one of the largest field exercises that has taken place since the 1940′s. The exercise involved over 600 emergency service personnel from multiple agencies. Part of the exercise was to simulate the response and rescue of members of the public following an explosion and building collapse...
Social responsibility is a big part of what we stand for here at Cardinal.

I'm back down at Titanic Slipways off the Queen's Road in Belfast dockland to see the Great Light Maritime Exhibit that was opened yesterday. ( 8th March 2018 ) The Great Light is a marvellous new addition to the maritime history already showcased at Titanic.

I will make a further videos showing the educational information boards that circle round the base of the Great light Lantern, the displayed lens and the light at night. ) The Great Light is one of the largest optics of its kind ever built in the world, and is around 130 years old.
