Controp releases iSea-25HD for maritime missions
Controp Precision Technologies has introduced the iSea-25HD surveillance system for maritime missions, the company announced on 17 October.
The new system has been specially designed for maritime vessels and remote weapon stations (RWS) for SAR, border surveillance, law enforcement, exclusive economic zone protection, counter piracy and special operations missions.
The gyro-stabilised iSea-25HD provides a stable, continuous and uninterrupted line-of-sight, ensuring a very clear picture even in rough seas. It is capable of interfacing with RWS and maintaining boresight in conditions of shocks and vibrations. The iSea-25HD incorporates digital and mechanical compensatory mechanisms for advanced shooting precision, and can withstand the harshest environmental conditions including fog, salinity, and moisture.
The system's sensors include a thermal imaging camera using 3-5µ infrared detector with a continuous zoom lens, a high sensitivity colour day camera and an eyesafe laser range finder.
