Elbit Launches Multi-Spectral Photographic Pod For F-16, Su-30 Aircraft
Elbit Systems' multi-spectral photography pod

Elbit Systems has launched a new multi-spectral photographic pod to be integrated on platforms such as F-16, Su-30 and B-737 aircraft for reconnaissance operations.

CONDOR MS Long Range Oblique Photography (LOROP) system involves Multi-Spectral (MS) sensing capability and Artificial Intelligence (AI) analytics to stand-off strategic intelligence gathering missions, the company said in a statement Thursday.

The system integrates three high resolution Electro Optic (EO) sensors into the CONDOR2 system: Visible & Near Infra-Red (VNIR), Medium-Wave Infrared (MWIR), and Short-Wave Infrared (SWIR). Multi-spectral sensing, stabilization and auto image enhancement enables the new system to dramatically extend coverage area in day, night and adverse weather conditions thereby improving the strategic reconnaissance output while increasing the survivability of the platforms.

Deep learning algorithms and precise geo-location enable the CONDOR MS to identify targets quickly, hence shortening the time frame needed to close sensor-to-shooter loops.
