NATO Special Forces To Equip Its USVs, Patrol Boats With EO/IR Maritime Camera Payloads
CONTROP - iSea-10U Maritime payload

The Special Maritime Forces of several NATO countries have picked CONTROP Precision Technologies' iSea-10U EO/IR Maritime system to equip Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs) and Fast Patrol Boats.

The iSea-10U opens up new opportunities for maritime customers operating small boats, due to the fact that it is a Navy grade high quality product which is being offered at a commercial price, making it ideal for both naval and coastguard applications.

The iSea-10U is a gyro-stabilized three gimbal small maritime payload, which provides a remarkably stable image from fast Patrol Boats and Rigid-Hulled Inflatable Boats (RHIBs) and can detect small boats (1x3m) at approximately 1 NM

The high performance payload includes an uncooled thermal imaging camera with continuous optical zoom lens. The iSea-10U is operated with CONTROP's proprietary Electronics Box, which includes a Video Tracker as well as Video Enhancement algorithms and a Picture-in-Picture feature, characteristics that are normally featured only on larger payloads.

"The recently procured iSea-10U payloads are technologically unique due to their unusual combination of three gimbals with gyro-stabilization in a small payload which is suitable for small boats in rough maritime conditions.” CONTROP's VP Marketing Mr. Johnny Carni said.

Therefore, the iSea-10U customers are getting very clear pictures from a high performance and user-friendly system for a relatively low price, Carni added.
