Israeli defense company CONTROP put on display Tuesday a new-generation visual intelligence sensor at the XPONENTIAL 2016 defense exhibition in New Orleans. The May 2-5 trade show is held by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems.
CONTROP’s T-Stamp triple sensor day and night miniature payload is operational in several IDF units, as well as in the US military and other international clients. The payload provides high resolution images for longer range operations.
“The system is ideal for small UAS (Unmanned Aerial Systems), VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) Systems, Hovering Aerial Systems, Aerostats and other lightweight aircraft (A/C),” CONTROP said in a statement.
The payload is “already operational and proven in dozens of locations around the world,” it added.
Weighing 3.3 kilograms, the T-Stamp comes with an enhanced, cooled infrared camera, a day camera, and an optional laser pointer in a single payload. It can be mounted in “nose-mount, belly-mount or top-mount configurations,” CONTROP added.
The company makes a range of payloads for day and night surveillance on board drones, aerostats, helicopters, light aircraft, and maritime patrol boats.
In March, CONTROP announced that it was supplying India with long-range observation systems for critical site protection.
That same month, the company said it provided the Colombian Navy with maritime electro-optical and infrared camera payloads for installation on new warships.
