Launched at Euronaval 2018 in Paris, the iSea-25HD has been optimised for small boat applications and remote weapon stations (RWS). It replaces the smaller iSea-20HD payload and joins three other payloads in the series: the iSea-30H, iSea-40HD, and iSea-50HD.

The gyro-stabilised iSea-25HD enables a stable, continuous, and uninterrupted line-of-sight (LOS) to ensure a clear picture in rough sea states. According to the company, it is robust enough to withstand harsh weather conditions, including fog, salinity, and moisture.

The system's sensors include a high-performance imaging camera that operates in the 3 to 5 µm spectrum. Additional features include advanced image processing and video enhancement algorithms.

iSea-25HD has been designed for use in small boats, where space and payload capacity are particularly constrained, and is capable of interfacing with remote weapon stations.
