EURONAVAL 2018: CONTROP Launches iSea-25HD EO/IR Payload
Israel’s Controp Precision Technologies has expanded its family of maritime surveillance products with the addition of the new iSea-25HD electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) payload.
Launched at Euronaval 2018 in Paris, the iSea-25HD has been optimised for small boat applications and remote weapon stations (RWS). It replaces the smaller iSea-20HD payload and joins three other payloads in the series: the iSea-30H, iSea-40HD, and iSea-50HD.
The gyro-stabilised iSea-25HD enables a stable, continuous, and uninterrupted line-of-sight (LOS) to ensure a clear picture in rough sea states. According to the company, it is robust enough to withstand harsh weather conditions, including fog, salinity, and moisture.
The system’s sensors include a high-performance imaging camera that operates in the 3 to 5 µm spectrum. Additional features include advanced image processing and video enhancement algorithms.
iSea-25HD has been designed for use in small boats, where space and payload capacity are particularly constrained, and is capable of interfacing with remote weapon stations. It is suitable for missions such as search and rescue, border surveillance, law enforcement, exclusive economic zone protection, counter piracy, and special operations missions.
At Euronaval 2018 Controp also announced the delivery of an iSea-30HD EO/IR to the Latvian Navy. In 2017 the iSEA-30HD variant was supplied to the Australian Border Force for use on its Bay-class maritime vessels, while the iSea-50HD system is pending delivery to an undisclosed Asia-Pacific customer for integration onto patrol boats
