CONTROP is to supply surveillance and observation systems for new ships currently being built for the Vietnamese Border Guard.
The contracts are for the supply of the iSea-25HD system - a lightweight, high-performance EO / IR payload for maritime surveillance and observation missions, suitable for use on medium size boats.
CONTROP Precision Technologies Ltd. - a company specializing in the field of electro-optics and IR defense and homeland security solutions – has been selected to supply iSea-25HD observation systems for installation on the new ships under construction at L&T’s shipyards in India, and vessels being built for the Vietnamese Border Guard, by Hong Ha shipyards in Vietnam. The systems will be delivered during 2020 and 2021.
Easily interfaced with other onboard systems, the iSea-25HD offers a full solution for naval and maritime operations. Featuring a unique, cutting-edge gyro-stabilized system, it enables a stable, continuous and uninterrupted line-of-sight (LOS) view, ensuring a very clear picture, even in the roughest of seas, and is robust enough to withstand even the harshest environmental conditions including fog, moisture, salinity and excessive splashing.
Capable of maintaining boresight even in conditions where there are shocks and vibrations, the iSea-25HD incorporates digital and mechanical compensatory mechanisms developed by CONTROP to significantly enhance image quality.
The iSea-25HD lightweight system provides maximum range surveillance using highly sensitive sensors, including a high-performance thermal imaging (TI) camera using 3-5µ IR detector with a continuous zoom lens, a high-sensitivity color day camera, and an eye-safe laser range finder (LRF). Among its additional features are advanced image processing and video enhancement algorithms. Applications include search & rescue, law/coast guard enforcement, EEZ protection, counter piracy, illegal fishing and special ops.
“The iSea-25HD system was launched only last year, and has already been operationally proven by the company's customers around the world,” says Hagai Azani, CEO of CONTROP's. “We consider our selection by L&T in India and Hong Ha in Vietnam to be another important show of trust in us by our customers, as suppliers of electro-optical systems for observation and surveillance missions. Specially developed in response to customer demand for a system that can withstand harsh marine environmental conditions."
