Enhanced Epsilon 140 introduced

14th December 2016 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Octopus ISR Systems Europe has introduced an enhanced version of the Epsilon 140 UAV gimbal with dual sensor payload, the company announced on 13 December.

The new version is the topic of a newly signed long-term agreement with RT LTA Systems that will see the Epsilon 140 payload as a default option for the Skystar 100 mini aerostat system.

The new version of the Epsilon 140 will now operate a 3.3x IR continuous zoom lens on LWIR sensor while maintaining a weight of only 1.7kg. With this new capability, night-time surveillance and reconnaissance missions will be significantly more efficient.

Konstantins Krivovs, business development manager of Octopus ISR Systems, said: ‘The combination of Skystar 100 with the enhanced Epsilon 140 forms a mobile, high-performance, and cost-effective solution for any kind of surveillance and reconnaissance mission.

‘While installed on a Skystar 100 balloon, the Epsilon 140 can be used day and night for large-area surveillance, with the ability to zoom in on the target of interest and therefore increase situational awareness.’
