Israel’s Controp Precision Technologies has won a tender to supply its iSKY-50HD electrooptical/infrared (EO/IR) system for fitment onto unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) being developed by India’s state-owned Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO).
In a company statement CONTROP’s CEO & President, Hagay Azani, said that the DRDO had shortlisted the iSKY- 50HD for procurement following an evaluation process that included several other EO/IR systems.
The iSky-50HD is a member of CONTROP’s iSky family of lightweight, compact EO/IR observation systems, which have been specifically designed for use in challenging airborne environments. The iSky-50HD features highly-sensitive multi-spectral sensors, which are gyro-stabilized and have advanced image processing algorithms, thereby providing maximum sensor ranges and performance, for a variety of airborne defence applications.
