4 September 2019. CONTROP Precision Technologies Ltd. – a company specializing in the field of Electro-Optics (EO) and InfraRed (IR) Defense and Homeland Security solutions ‒ presents a unique EO suite comprising the TORNADO-ER and the SPEED-ER systems.
The TORNADO-ER provides a panoramic InfraRed (IR) image, automatic detection of moving maritime targets as well as multi-target tracking capability, covering dense maritime areas and detecting swimmers at short ranges and vessels up to 12km. The SPEED-ER is a long-range observation system that is cued to those targets which have been detected by the TORNADO-ER, enabling users to explore the targets and their contents, and providing highly accurate locational details. The two solutions are controlled by a dedicated C2 system, a man-machine interface (MMI) which includes intuitive panoramic imagery, maps, enlarged images, and observation videos. The user-friendly MMI presents targets on the map and on the panoramic image, providing all required information upon request.
The TORNADO-ER includes two mid-wave infrared (MWIR) cameras. The live videos from these cameras are “stitched together” to provide one panoramic stream. The system scans at a rate of 3 seconds for 360°.
The SPEED-ER has an extended long range camera and highly stabilized optics, featuring CONTROP’s unique technologies. The sensors include MWIR, Short Wave InfraRed (SWIR), Daylight Channels, Laser Range Finder (LRF) and an optional Laser Pointer. “Always attentive to the needs of our customers, we have developed a comprehensive coastal solution for maritime surveillance that enables a single operator to essentially control the seas,” says Mr. Ra’anan Shelach, CONTROP’s VP Marketing. “It is already in operational use, providing highly effective surveillance capabilities, mainly in dense waters and seas with crowded traffic, such as ports, waterways, straits, etc.”
