CONTROP Partners with Australian Company eCastle for Marketing its EO/IR Defence and Security Solutions
This cooperation strengthens CONTROP’s presence and activity in Australia and the Asia Pacific region
28 August 2018. CONTROP Precision Technologies Ltd. – a company specializing in the field of Electro-Optics (EO) and InfraRed (IR) defence and surveillance technologies – has partnered with eCastle Australia for the marketing of its leading edge EO/IR defence and homeland security solutions.
According to Mr. Ra’anan Shelach, CONTROP’s VP Marketing, “CONTROP sees eCastle as a strong and committed partner in establishing our position in the country, marketing our products, and developing the Australian EO/IR market.
“CONTROP’s extensive experience and operationally-proven products – together with eCastle’s SME position as a Command & Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) integrator will help position CONTROP’s products as part of wider C4ISR solutions for protection of defence bases, Home Affairs and Australia’s borders and key infrastructure.”
CONTROP will present SPEED-ER and SIGHT-HD at the company’s stand at Land Forces 2018 in Australia.
SPEED-ER is an ultra-long-range observation system for land applications providing excellent detection, recognition and identification performance for coastal and border protection. The system’s 3 channels – Visible, Thermal, and Short-Wave Infrared (SWIR) – deliver capabilities unique to the industry. Overcoming poor visibility, the SWIR system provides sharp, clear, high-resolution pictures, even in conditions of haze, dust, rain or high humidity, at any hour of the day or night. The gyro-stabilisation and the image processing algorithms achieve high resolution and unmatched quality at very long ranges. Applications include border, coastal, and perimeter surveillance; protection of critical infrastructures and force protection.
SIGHT-HD is a gyro-stabilized targeting sight for Armored Fighting Vehicles (AFVs) and Remote Weapon Stations (RWS) with unique capabilities and performance that are ideally suited for these platforms and weapons systems. Due to its cutting-edge technologies, SIGHT-HD ensures fast target assessment and precision engagement, day and night, under the most severe conditions. The mechanical and digital design provides a very high pointing accuracy, Line of Sight (LOS) measurement accuracy, LOS repetition, and high gun impact shock survivability, as well as dual angle-measuring sensor on each axis. It also maintains boresight in conditions of extreme shocks and vibrations. Applications include force protection, border surveillance, perimeter protection, route clearance, air defence, and ISR observation. At 13kg, the low-weight payload is easily installed on any type of vehicle or remote weapon station.
Mr. Shelach concluded, “SPEED-ER and SIGHT-HD, as well as CONTROP’s other solutions, are ideal for the region’s mission needs. We are confident that our partnership with eCastle will lead to expanded cooperation with the Australian defence and homeland security markets.”
