Israel Aerospace Industries Awarded Contract by Philippine Navy for MiniPOP for Maritime Applications Electro-Optics Systems

Manila, Philippines, 16 May 2022 – Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has been awarded a contract to supply the Philippine Navy with the MiniPOP for Maritime Applications Electro-Optics Systems. The systems will be integrated on patrol boats in the Philippine Navy.

IAI’s MiniPOP for Maritime Applications, developed by IAI’s Systems Missiles and Space Group, is a lightweight and compact multi-sensors observation system built for maritime applications. The electro-optics system is designed to operate during both day and night, and meet harsh environmental conditions such as shock, vibration from waves, and extreme temperatures.

The payload provides real-time imaging, automatic video tracking, and precise target geo-location capabilities that can be used as a stand-alone EO/IR observation system on small and medium sized vessels.
