CONTROP Precision Technologies, a company specializing in the field of electro-optics (EO) and infrared (IR) defense and homeland security solutions, announced it will equip an Asian country's Coast Guard with its advanced iSea EO/IR maritime surveillance payloads.

The systems will be installed on several maritime vessels in the beginning in 2019 for territorial water protection missions. The easy-to-install, easy-to-operate systems include a long-range thermal camera, a high definition (HD) visible surveillance camera, and an eye-safe laser range finder (ELRF). In addition, the system features advanced image processing and video enhancement algorithms, automatic video tracker (AVT) and automatic gain control (AGC).

“CONTROP previously supplied its EO/IR systems to the country's Navy, and this first order from their Coast Guard is another sign of trust in CONTROP's technology by their military forces,” said CEO Hagay Azani. “These high-quality, gyro-stabilized camera systems provide clear day and night images at very long distances. For these reasons, the iSea family of payloads are widely used by navies, coast guards, and special naval operations teams on a variety of maritime vessels in many countries worldwide.”
