CONTROP Ships It’s 2000 STAMP Miniature EO/IR Payload
Designed for small UAS, VTOLs and aircraft, the STAMP Family is operational in dozens of locations around the world
CONTROP Precision Technologies Ltd. – a world leader in EO/IR defense and homeland security solutions – announces it has recently shipped its 2000th STAMP Dual Sensor Day/Night Stabilized Payload. Ideal for small UAS (Unmanned Aerial System), VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) Systems and aircraft, the STAMP is operational in dozens of locations around the world.
According to VP Marketing, Mr. Johnny Carni, “We are excited to celebrate the shipping of the 2000th STAMP system to an extremely satisfied customer. Throughout the years, the STAMP family has gone through modifications and enhancement procedures that have kept it in its position as a market leader. Technology-wise, this is the only small camera payload in the world to incorporate 3 gimbals, which allows for an unprecedented stabilized picture when looking both horizontally and vertically. This high level of stabilization is critical, particularly when using an uncooled thermal camera with a zoom lens, in order to provide the user with a clear and detailed image. With the STAMP, we have basically taken the most high-end technology in Electro-Optics and miniaturized it to fit even the smallest of platforms.”
The STAMP is a family of gyro-stabilized payloads especially designed for day and night tactical over-the-hill reconnaissance missions. Lightweight yet ruggedized, the STAMP provides precise geolocation and can withstand high-shock landings. With low power consumption, the STAMP incorporates only one LRU and provides the most cost-effective solution of its type.
Carni goes on to say that, “CONTROP’s STAMP line of EO/IR systems is in daily operational use in dozens of different locations and applications worldwide, and receives high praises from its users. We have plans to expand the line with new systems to fill up operational gaps and will hopefully be announcing a new STAMP system during 2016 “.
The STAMP Family includes the super lightweight newcomer- MICRO-STAMP – a 300 gram gyro-stabilized payload that provides a dual(2) FOV Uncooled IR camera and a Day Camera with a Continuous Zoom Lens; the M-STAMP, a 1.3 kg gyro-stabilized Multi Sensor Payload with an Uncooled IR Camera with a Continuous Optical Zoom Lens, a Day Camera and a Laser Pointer; and the T-STAMP, a triple sensor gyro-stabilized EO/IR payload which includes a Cooled IR Camera with a Continuous Zoom Lens up to three degrees in the NFOV, a Day Camera and an optional Laser Pointer all in a compact and versatile 3.3 kg payload.
