27 January 2020. CONTROP Precision Technologies Ltd. – a company specialising in the field of electro-optics and infrared (EO/IR) for defence and homeland security solutions – is announcing new capabilities for its iSea-50HD, replacing the thermal camera with a new HD thermal camera, and adding a SWIR channel which enables clear observation in the harsh environmental conditions typical of the Indian maritime climate.
The iSea-50HD system provides maximum-range surveillance using highly sensitive sensors, including an HD Thermal Imaging (TI) Camera working in the 3-5µ band with a continuous zoom lens, a high-sensitivity colour day camera, a SWIR channel and a long-range Eyesafe Laser Range Finder (ELRF). Among its additional features are advanced image processing and unique video enhancement algorithms.
Providing a full solution for naval and maritime operational requirements, CONTROP’s compact, lightweight iSea surveillance systems have been mission proven since the 1990s, integrated across the globe on a wide variety of vessels and in daily operation for maritime missions such as search & rescue, maritime surveillance, law enforcement, EEZ protection, counter piracy and special operations. In India, the iSea-30HD is already installed and active on multiple vessels belonging to the Indian Coast Guard. CONTROP is actively pursuing new contracts in this market and participating in local tenders for Indian shipyards, with the goal of continuing this successful cooperation.
“CONTROP continues to lead the development of customised technologies, tailored to meet customer demand and the challenging field conditions in which their forces operate,” says Mr. Hagay Azani, CONTROP’s CEO & President. “Being able to operate in harsh environments with limited visibility, at specific times of day and night, is critical to customers in this region.”
