Singapore Air Show 2018: CONTROP to Showcase a Unique, Compact Payload for UAS
Weighing only 3.5kg, the recently-introduced T-STAMP-XR includes a cooled thermal imaging camera with extremely narrow FOV, and unsurpassed gyro-stabilization – enabling outstanding day and night surveillance capabilities on small UAS
Singapore Airshow 2018, February 6-11, Singapore, Stand Q30
January 30, 2018 – CONTROP Precision Technologies Ltd. will display its T-STAMP-XR – a unique, compact payload for UAS with exceptional thermal sensor optics, at the Singapore Air Show 2018.
According to Johnny Carni, VP Marketing East Asia, “We developed the T-STAMP-XR in response to the operational need for an ultra-small low SWaP payload that can provide the optical performance of much larger payloads. This payload configuration enables the use of much smaller UAS for missions that up to now required large aerial platforms, above and below the clouds, enabling long range observation including standoff observation and high image resolution”.
T-STAMP-XR – a new member of the CONTROP STAMP family of gyro-stabilized miniature EO/IR payloads for UAS – incorporates a unique technology that enables to reduce the weight to only 3.5kg. It is comprised of very narrow FOV capability for the HD day camera, the cooled thermal imaging (TI) camera, with an optional laser designator or a laser pointer.
The built-in INS on the Line-of-Sight provides precise and accurate target coordinates, geo-location, hold-to-coordinate and point-to-coordinate capabilities. The optional laser pointer is available for onboard target pointing. Additional features include onboard automatic video tracker, image enhancement, local automatic gain control (AGC), picture-in-picture (PIP), digital video output, and optional H.264 video output. The T-STAMP-XR enables tactical interoperability with other platforms in the theatre, and has low life-cycle costs due to a unique and high endurance cooled TI detector.
The STAMP is a family of gyro-stabilized miniature payloads, which were especially designed for day and night tactical over-the-hill reconnaissance missions on small aerial platforms. Lightweight yet ruggedized, the STAMPs provide precise geolocation and can withstand high-shock landings. With low power consumption, the STAMPs incorporate only one LRU and provide the most cost-effective solution of their type for small manned and unmanned systems.
