AVT unveils new maritime imaging system
Ascent Vision Technologies (AVT) has launched a new multi-spectral imaging system for maritime intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance operations.
The CM262 is a multi-intelligence, gyro-stabilised imaging system that combines advanced imagery and stabilisation technologies in a sub 12kg, compact system, for border protection, littoral security, maritime patrol and SAR applications. Three sensor configurations, including HD daylight, HD mid-wave infrared (MWIR) and a laser range finder, enable maximum situational awareness and target acquisition, day and night.
For long range identification and target detection, the CM262 provides 60x daylight and 20x MWIR continuous optical zoom. Optimised for the maritime environment, the system delivers crisp and accurate imagery through sea glare, fog and smoke. Its video processor produces accurate, reliable and autonomous object tracking; improved on-the-move stabilisation; and robust video content analytics.
