DSP-1 weighs 22.5 kg, has a diameter of 33cm.

SHAPO lightweight multi sensor EO / IR gyro-stabilized observation payload

Weighing only 10kg, this camera payload provides high performance with very low weight ratio. Perfect for day / night observation, law enforcement, search and rescue (SAR), police applications, homeland security and more, on board helictopers and light aircraft. Weight: 10kg.; diameter: 24cm.

VIEW family of compact IR gyro-stabilized observation systems for land (L-VIEW), sea (C-VIEW) or air (A-VIEW) applications.

These three gimbal gyro-stabilized camera payloads include an uncooled IR camera with Continuous zoom lens or day TV CCD camera. The T-VIEW has both day and night cameras. Applications include navigation aide to commander and crew, observation and situation Awareness, Safety, Environmental Monitoring, Search and Rescue and more. VIEW Weight: 3.2 kg.; Diameter: 17.7 cm. T-VIEW Weight: 4.6 kg.; Diameter: 19 cm (7.5in).

T-STAMP triple sensor small gyro-Stabilized payload for small UAVs, A/C and ground vehicles

Weighing only 2.8 kg, this 3 gimbal gyro-stabilized payload has three sensors – IR-cooled or uncooled camera with continuous zoom lens, CCD TV camera and optional laser pointer. Provides small UAVs with the image quality of large UAV payloads. Weight: 2.8 kg.; Diameter: 17.8 cm (7in).

STAMP gyro-Stabilized miniature payloads for day and night surveillance applications

The STAMP family includes D-STAMP for daylight use, HD-STAMP with high definition TV, U-STAMP-Z with uncooled IR and continuous zoom lens for night time use, UDF-STAMP with dual field-of-view and more. Weighing from only 750g, these were the chosen payloads for the important Israel MOD small UAV program. For use on mini UAVs, aerostats, small manned aircraft and manned / unmanned ground vehicles and more. Weight: from 750 gr.; Diameter: 13cm (5in).

PCDU portable control and display unit for VIEW, STAMP and other CONTROP payloads

The PCDU is a ruggedized. high-brightness display unit for use in full daylight or total darkness.

SPIDER LR, SPIDER, CEDAR and DANIS long-range panoramic automatic intruder detection and recognition systems.

Also available, the SPEED-V and MEOS-LR for mobile vehicles and high mast mounting applications. The SPIDER LR, SPIDER, SPEED-V and MEOS-LR are gyro-stabilized systems. Applications include coastal surveillance (including small boat detection, swimmer detection, etc.), border surveillance (against smuggling, illegal immigration, etc), perimeter security of high-value sensitive installations (such as airports, power plants, fuel storage depots, oil refineries, water reservoirs, armed forces facilities, etc.), ground troops security, military base protection and more.

SPEED-A long-range gyro-stabilized camera payload in pitch, yaw and roll

The SPEED-A is especially designed for tactical aerostat / balloon mounted surface monitoring for persistent 24/7 surveillance. Ideal for base and force protection as well as border protection. The SPEED-A was designed to answer a unique field requirement for a stabilized high performance camera which can provide very long range observation on this most unique moving platform – the tactical balloon. Weight: 22.5kg.

FOX thermal imaging cameras with continuous zoom lens

Observation units which can be used at night in total darkness. The IR cameras can be supplied with or without an enclosure and are incorporated in CONTROP's camera systems. Unique features include the continuous optical zoom lens so the operator never loses sight of the target during zoom-in and zoom-out, excellent image performance with advanced proprietary image enhancement features so every picture is perfect, even when there is a "hot spot" (explosion, fire etc) and more. Focal length(fl) options(mm): 120, 250, 450, 600, 720 or 1,400.

HRN-1 airborne directional antenna pedestal

HRN-1 airborne directional antenna pedestal is a lightweight communication antenna pedestal, designed to provide a single axis pointing capability in a very compact package, for use onboard UAVs. HRN-2 Airborne Dual Directional Antenna Pedestal is a lightweight communication antenna pedestal, designed to provide dual independent pointing capability in azimuth in a very compact package, for relay applications onboard UAVs.

First-hand experience in the “war against terrorism” brings the focus to CONTROP as a world leader in security and defense, due to the company’s innovative solutions for airborne, maritime and ground surveillance applications.
