CONTROP provides some of the most innovative solutions for surveillance and reconnaissance activities used in the world today and CONTROP products are operationally proven in many of the most challenging security and defence programs worldwide. Following are the prominent products manufactured by the prestigious corporation which will be displayed at Aero India-2019. iSky-50HDThe iSky-50HD was uniquely developed for the challenging and often turbulent aerial environment to provide solutions for most medium and long-range aerial surveillance platforms. Features include a continuous optical zoom lens in the day (or high definition-HD) and thermal imaging (SD/HD) cameras, gyro-stabilized gimbals and multi sensor options including Eyesafe Laser Range Finder (ELRF) and/or Laser Pointer, all of which provide outstanding capabilities. The iSky systems can be installed on helicopters, fixed wing aircraft and unmanned aerial systems (UAS), and may be integrated with the platforms’ systems.
The payload system includes three channels: a continuous zoom HD day channel, a continuous zoom HD thermal channel, and a SWIR spotter. Additional optional features include an Eyesafe Laser Range Finder (ELRF) and/or Laser Pointer. The systems include superb gyro-stabilization, real-time image enhancement features, built-in INS, and automatic video tracker. All of the CONTROP iSky day/night camera payloads have an easy interface to radar and other mission systems for slewing the EO/IR camera to the detected target.
Ideal for manned or unmanned airborne platforms, all of the iSky systems include real-time Image Enhancement Features, built in INS, automatic target tracking and are successfully operated, fully integrated and deployed by Search and Rescue (SAR), Border Surveillance, Law Enforcement, Special Operations, Maritime Patrol and Force Protection Units around the world.
SPEED-ERThe SPEED-ER Land-Based Ultra-Long-Range Observation System including SWIR camera, Day zoom camera and spotter, FOX Thermal Imaging Cameras and Land-Based EO/IR gyro-stabilized gimbal.The SPEED-ER, first-of-its-kind superb gyro-stabilized, land-based, ultra-long-range observation system. SPEED-ER’s 3 channels – Visible, Thermal and SWIR (Short-Wave Infrared)– ensure sharp, clear and stabilized pictures. The SWIR provides outstanding images, even in conditions of haze, dust, rain or high humidity, and at any hour of the day or night. This capability makes SPEED-ER unique in the industry, and ideal for diverse and challenging applications and missions including coastal and border surveillance.
The SPEED-ER can be used for the following applications:
- Land Borders Surveillance.
- Coastlines Surveillance.
- Vessel Traffic Services(VTS).
- Long Range Air Defense.
SIGHTAt Aero – India Controp will present the SIGHT-HD, a specialized targeting EO/IR payload for Remote Weapons Stations (RWSs) and Armored Fighting Vehicles (AFVs).The SIGHT-HD is a gyro-stabilized payload that was developed specially to withstand extreme environmental conditions, facilitating mid-to-long range target acquisition, day and night, for mobile and stationary applications. When installed on AFVs, it is ideal for a wide range of applications, such as border surveillance, perimeter protection of sensitive installations, force protection, route clearance and more. At just 13kg, the low-weight payload is easily installed on any type of vehicle or weapon station.
The SIGHT-HD includes a high-performance Thermal Imaging (TI) camera using a 3-5µ cooled IR detector with a continuous zoom lens; High Definition (HD) Colour Day camera with a continuous zoom lens; and an Eyesafe Laser Range Finder (ELRF), all integrated into an all-in-one Line Replacement Unit (LRU). The advanced image processing features include local AGC on the TI and Day cameras; Video Enhancement; Automatic Video Tracker and Picture-in-Picture (PIP). A Laser Pointer, Control Unit (CU) and Digital Video Recorder (DVR) are also available as optional add-ons.
