About the company
Schiebel Corporation is an Austrian company which manufactures UAVs and mine detection equipment. It was named by the UN Fact-Finding Mission on Myanmar for allowing dual use UAVs to be sold to Burma which were intended for the Burmese military. Despite this controversy, since the attempted military coup in 2021 it has, via a third party, sold parts for Camcopter S-100 via the same Burmese military crony arms broker, Miya Win International.

Added to the Dirty List 10 May 2022
The Dirty List names international companies doing business with the military in Burma. The list also includes international companies involved in projects where there are human rights violations or environmental destruction.
In September 2018, the United Nations Fact Finding Mission on Myanmar, which has been investigating human rights violations in the country, stated:
“The actions of the Tatmadaw (Burmese military) in Kachin, Rakhine and Shan States, in particular in the context of the ‘clearance operations’ in northern Rakhine State in 2016 and 2017, have so seriously violated international law that any engagement in any form with the Tatmadaw, its current leadership, and its businesses, is indefensible.”
