CONTROP Expands its Family of Maritime Surveillance Products by Launching the iSea-25HD
The iSea-25HD was specially designed for maritime vessels and remote weapon stations (RWS)
17 October 2018. CONTROP Precision Technologies Ltd. – a company specializing in the field of Electro-Optics (EO) and InfraRed (IR) defense and homeland security solutions – extends its maritime surveillance capabilities, launching the iSea-25HD, the newest member of its family of surveillance systems for maritime missions, at EuroNaval 2018. The iSea-25HD was specially designed for maritime vessels and remote weapon stations (RWS).
The iSea-25HD features a unique, cutting-edge stabilization system that enables a stable, continuous and uninterrupted line-of-sight (LOS) – ensuring a very clear picture, even in the roughest of seas. The system is capable of interfacing with RWSs, for example Rafael’s Typhoon System, whereby maintaining boresight in conditions of shocks and vibrations. The iSea-25HD incorporates digital and mechanical compensatory mechanisms that CONTROP developed to significantly contribute to the shooting precision. The robust system withstands even the harshest environmental conditions including fog, salinity, and moisture. Easily interfaced with other onboard systems, the iSea-25HD offers a full solution for naval and maritime operations.
The low weight, gyro-stabilized system provides maximum range surveillance using highly sensitive sensors, including a high performance Thermal Imaging (TI) Camera using 3-5µ IR detector with a continuous zoom lens, a high sensitivity color Day Camera, and an Eyesafe Laser Range Finder (LRF). Among its additional features are advanced image processing and video enhancement algorithms. Applications include Search & Rescue, Border Surveillance, Law Enforcement, EEZ Protection, Counter Piracy, and Special Ops.
According to Mr. Ra’anan Shelach, CONTROP’s VP Marketing, “Advanced operational capabilities are enabled by the stabilized line-of-sight delivered by our innovative system, ensuring tactical superiority even in the harshest and most unforgiving environmental conditions. Real-time video image stability in the face of the most challenging conditions is critical for our naval customers.”
