15 September 2015

Israeli electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) house Controp (Stand N2-360) is debuting its iSea family of maritime surveillance payloads.

Developed and ruggedised for the challenging maritime environment, the iSea range comprises seven different stabilised EO/IR payloads – iSea-10U, 20U, 20, 30, 30HD, 40HD and 50HD – matched to specific short-, medium-and long-range surveillance applications across a range of maritime platforms.

Features include continuous IR zoom lens, gyro-stabilised gimbals and a range of multisensor options, such as thermal camera, TV, laser rangefinder and laser pointer.

According to Controp, iSea systems are suitable for installation on a variety of vessel types, including rigid inflatable boats, patrol craft, hovercraft, offshore patrol vessels, corvettes and frigates.

They are also applicable to unmanned surface vessels.

Controp has recently won several contracts with NATO Special Forces for the iSea- 10U and iSea-30HD maritime surveillance payloads.
