CONTROP Precision Technologies has announced the sale of several iSky-20HD (formerly SHAPO-HD) and iSky-50HD (formerly DSP-HD) EO/IR payloads to the Israeli Police, to be installed on new helicopters and integrated with Churchill Navigation Mission Systems. CONTROP will display the iSky family of six (6) multi-spectral, highly stabilized, low weight airborne payloads at the upcoming Paris Air Show, 19-25 June 2017 at Le Bourget, Hall 3, booth C-2.
According to VP Marketing, Mr. Hagay Azani “We are very proud that the iSky payloads were chosen for Israel Police helicopters. In addition, in recent months CONTROP has also sold several iSky-30HD and iSky-50HD systems to a variety of customers in North America, Asia-Pacific and Africa, for installation on Helicopters, Fixed Wing Aircraft (A/C) and other platforms. We are proud to be one of a selected and prestigious group of companies that can boast a truly comprehensive line of small, medium and large EO/IR solutions for modern air/land/maritime security, defense and coastal/border surveillance challenges. Incorporating the most advanced technologies in this field, the iSky is expected to draw a lot of attention and interest from military and para-military integrators as well as relevant End Users.”
CONTROP’s line of six (6) medium and long-range aerial payloads (iSky-20, 20HD, 30, 30HD, 40 and 50HD) was uniquely developed for the challenging and often turbulent aerial environment and they provide solutions for most medium and long-range aerial surveillance platforms. Features include a continuous optical zoom lens in the day (or high definition-HD) and thermal imaging (SD/HD) cameras, gyro-stabilized gimbals and multi sensor options including Eyesafe Laser Range Finder (ELRF) and/or Laser Pointer, all of which provide outstanding capabilities. The iSky systems can be installed on helicopters, fixed wing aircraft (A/C) and unmanned aerial systems (UAS), and may be integrated with the platforms’ systems. Ideal for manned or unmanned airborne platforms, all of the iSky systems include real-time Image Enhancement Features, built in INS, automatic target tracking and are successfully operated, fully integrated and deployed by Search and Rescue (SAR), Border Surveillance, Law Enforcement, Special Operations, Maritime Patrol and Force Protection Units.
Mr. Azani goes on to say “With decades of worldwide operational airborne experience on 5 continents and on a large variety of platforms, we are confident that the iSky line will strengthen our position as a tri-sector world leader in this field”.
