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.

VIEW family of compact IR observation systems

VIEW family of compact IR observation systems for land (L-VIEW), sea (C-VIEW) or air (A-VIEW) applications as well as T-VIEW (triple sensor) payload. These three gimbal gyro-stabilized camera payloads include an uncooled IR camera with continuous zoom lens or day TV CCD camera. Applications include navigation aide to commander and crew, observation and situational awareness, safety, environmental monitoring, search-and-rescue, helicopters and more – for air / land / maritime applications.

T-STAMP and TR-STAMP triple sensor small gyro-stabilized payload

T-STAMP and TR-STAMP triple sensor small gyro-stabilized payload for small UAVs and small aircraft. Also available with a laser range finder. Weighing only 2.8kg, this three 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.

STAMP family of STAbilized Miniature Payloads

STAMP Family of STAbilized Miniature Payloads for day and night surveillance applications. Weighing from only 750g, these were the chosen payloads for the important Israel MOD small UAV programme. For use on mini UAVs, aerostats, small manned aircraft and manned / unmanned ground vehicles and more. The STAMP line of miniature payloads includes single-sensor options (D-STAMP, U-STAMP) and the M-STAMP multi-sensor option. The state-of-the-art MICRO-STAMP camera payload weighs only 270g for micro SUAVs.

SPEED-LR, SPIDER, MEOS and DANIS long range panoramic automatic intruder detection and recognition systems

SPEED-LR, SPIDER, MEOS and DANIS long range panoramic automatic intruder detection and recognition systems for proven 24/7 security protection. 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. Installation on buildings, towers, moving vehicles and more.

SPEED-A long range camera payload

SPEED-A long range camera payload specially designed for tactical 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 gyro-stabilized high-performance camera which can provide very long range observation on this most unique moving platform – the tactical balloon.

FOX family of thermal imaging cameras with continuous zoom lens

FOX family of 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.

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.
