Controp’s iSea for Asian coast guard

25th February 2019 - 17:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Controp Precision Technologies will equip an unnamed Asian country's coast guard vessels with its advanced iSea EO/IR maritime surveillance systems, the company announced on 20 February.

The systems will be deployed on several maritime vessels beginning in 2019 for territorial water protection missions. The systems include a long-range thermal camera, a high definition visible surveillance camera and an eye-safe laser range finder. The system also features advanced image processing and video enhancement algorithms, automatic video tracker and an automatic gain control.

The iSea’s stabilisation technology enables a continuous and uninterrupted line-of-sight to ensure clear pictures, even in rough seas. The system can sustain in harsh environmental conditions including fog, salinity and moisture.

The iSea system offers a full solution for naval maritime operations that easily interfaces with other on-board systems, including vessel radar systems, to provide slew-to-cue functionality.  

Hagay Azani, CEO, Controp, said: ‘Controp previously supplied its EO/IR systems to the country's navy, and this first order from their coast guard is another sign of trust in Controp's technology by their military forces.

‘These high-quality, gyro-stabilised camera systems provide clear day and night images at very long distances. For these reasons, the iSea family of payloads are widely used by navies, coast guards, and special naval operations teams on a variety of maritime vessels in many countries worldwide.’
