IAI grows its POP tactical payload family
Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) launched its new MegaPOP EO/IR payload on 17 February.
Developed by Tamam, the EO and inertial navigation division of IAI, MegaPOP blends high-definition vision capabilities with a system that uses several sensors simultaneously.
IAI stated that MegaPOP is designed for land applications such as marine or land border control, surveillance of sensitive facilities, or other missions requiring ‘especially lengthy surveillance performance’.
MegaPOP simultaneously records video on a thermal/HD channel with night vision, a colour daylight HD channel and an HD short-wave IR technology channel.
A continuous zoom capability provides the end-user with high-quality output even under challenging visual conditions. Inbuilt gyro stabilisation ensures stable imaging under all environmental conditions.
Additional system features include digital tracking, specialised image processing ‘and additional methods of data processing and automating surveillance capabilities’, IAI noted.
Both the 8x8 SuperAV Land and Multirole Tactical Vehicle have some common features.
