Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has been awarded a contract to supply the Philippine Navy with the MiniPOP for Maritime Applications Electro-Optics Systems. The systems will be integrated on patrol boats in the Philippine Navy.
IAI’s MiniPOP for Maritime Applications, developed by IAI’s Systems Missiles and Space Group, is a lightweight and compact multi-sensors observation system built for maritime applications. The electro-optics system is designed to operate during both day and night, and meet harsh environmental conditions such as shock, vibration from waves, and extreme temperatures.
The payload provides real-time imaging, automatic video tracking, and precise target geo-location capabilities that can be used as a stand-alone EO/IR observation system on small and medium sized vessels.
The MiniPOP for Maritime Applications is operational in navies worldwide, and builds on IAI’s decades-long heritage in electro-optics technology. IAI has extensive experience in developing electro-optic systems and operational sensors for air, land, and maritime applications.
“This contract for electro-optics systems joins other recent deals between IAI and the Philippine Navy, signifying the expanding cooperation and serving as a testimony to the trust the customer has in IAI’s advanced technologies, said Boaz Levy, IAI President and CEO, adding that “We look forward to broadening our fruitful partnership in the years to come.”
