India’s DRDO Selects Israeli-Made EO/IR System

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.

“Winning this tender confirms CONTROP’s leadership in the field of electro-optic systems,” said Azani. “We are very proud to have been awarded this strategic tender, which reflects our deep commitment to supporting the Indian Armed Forces with the latest technology.  The DRDO tested several systems and concluded that our technology and pricing was best suited to meet India’s defence requirements. We thank the DRDO for the confidence which they have shown in our products and technologies, and hope that this collaboration will lead to further projects in the future.”

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.
