Israeli company CONTROP has unveiled the SIGHT Box, a new configuration of the SIGHT payload in which all the sensors are contained within an enclosure.
The SIGHT concept is yet another solution provided by CONTROP, designed to enhance mission effectiveness whether in air defence, land mobile RWS or naval RWS applications. The company says that it is made to withstand all environmental needs of a combat vehicle – sand, dust, heat, intense movement and physical shock – the payload enables the shooter to obtain and maintain an accurate and stabilized line-of-sight to the target, even in the harshest of conditions.
The SIGHT Box features all the imaging capabilities of the other products in the SIGHT Family, now enclosed in a box frame. These include high-performance Thermal Imaging (TI) camera using a Cooled or Uncooled IR detector with a continuous zoom lens; High Definition (HD) Color Day camera with a continuous zoom lens; and an Eyesafe Laser Range Finder (ELRF). A picture-in-picture function provides simultaneous day and thermal imaging videos.
As well as making the off-the-shelf SIGHT Box available in three camera configurations – 25E, 15E and 10E – CONTROP offers RWS and AFV integrators/manufactures the option of incorporating specific types and specifications of camera, according to their particular requirements, making this an ideal and tailored-made solution.
“We continue to listen attentively to the needs of our customers around the world and their end users,” says Ra’anan Shelach, CONTROP’s VP Marketing. “Our flexibility to satisfy particular requirements or specifications enables us to deliver cost-effective solutions that do not compromise the system’s operational capabilities. The SIGHT Box is just one example of this.”
