Israel’s CONTROP Technologies has received a contract to provide an unspecified number of iSea-40HD maritime Electro Optical-Infra Red (EO/IR) payloads to the Vietnamese Navy.
This is a follow-on order of a previous order made three (3) years ago. Delivery of the systems will commence in 2018.
According to Hagay Azani, VP Marketing & Sales of CONTROP, “We are pleased that the Vietnamese Navy once again selected us to supply the marine payloads as a follow-on order.”
The iSea-40HD Maritime EO/IR Payload, weighing 29Kg, has a thermal camera with continuous optical zoom, a full HD day camera, four (4) gimbals for high stabilization, and an optional laser pointer and laser range finder.
The iSea Family of maritime EO/IR payloads are used worldwide for Coast Guard and Naval surveillance/observation applications. All of the CONTROP iSea day/night camera payloads have an interface to NMEA0183 radars for slewing the EO/IR camera to the detected target.
The iSea systems include CONTROP’s proprietary Payload Electronics Box, which provides a Video Tracker as well as Video Enhancement algorithms and a Picture-in- Picture feature.
This is a distinct advantage since the customer can procure a smaller payload system at the start, and later upgrade to a larger payload if required for longer distance acquisition, but will only need to change the payload (the rest of the equipment remains the same).
Controp announced the use of its Shapo Airborne EO/IR surveillance payload for the protection of 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The Shapo is installed on board the ADB-150 Aerostat that supports the Brazilian Air Force security mission and is deployed above the Olympics area, the company said in a statement Wednesday
