Israeli electro-optics and IR defence and homeland security solutions specialist, CONTROP will supply its iSea-25HD observation systems for new Vietnamese Border Guard vessels that are under construction.

New ships are being built at L&T’s shipyards in India, and vessels are also being built for the Vietnamese Border Guard, by Hong Ha shipyards in Vietnam. CONTROP will deliver the systems during 2020 and 2021.

CONTROP’s iSea-25HD is a lightweight, high-performance EO/IR payload for maritime surveillance and observation missions, suitable for use on medium size boats.

“The iSea-25HD system was launched only last year, and has already been operationally proven by the company’s customers around the world,” says Hagai Azani, CEO of CONTROP.

“We consider our selection by L&T in India and Hong Ha in Vietnam to be another important show of trust in us by our customers, as suppliers of electro-optical systems for observation and surveillance missions. Specially developed in response to customer demand for a system that can withstand harsh marine

The iSea-25HD offers a full solution for naval and maritime operations and features a unique, cutting-edge gyro-stabilized system, which enables a stable, continuous and uninterrupted line-of-sight (LOS) view, ensuring a very clear picture, even in the roughest of seas, and is robust enough to withstand even the harshest environmental conditions including fog, moisture, salinity and excessive splashing.

Capable of maintaining boresight even in conditions where there are shocks and vibrations, the iSea-25HD incorporates digital and mechanical compensatory mechanisms developed by CONTROP to significantly enhance image quality.

The iSea-25HD lightweight system provides maximum range surveillance using highly sensitive sensors, including a high-performance thermal imaging (TI) camera using 3-5µ IR detector with a continuous zoom lens, a high-sensitivity color day camera, and an eye-safe laser range finder (LRF).

Among its additional features are advanced image processing and video enhancement algorithms. Applications include search & rescue, law/coast guard enforcement, EEZ protection, counter piracy, illegal fishing and special ops.
