Controp Precision Technologies Ltd., specialising in the field of electro-optics (EO) and infrared (IR) defence and homeland security solutions, won a follow-on order to provide a significant number of iSea-40HD maritime EO/IR payloads to the Vietnamese Navy. Delivery will commence in 2018.
According to Mr. Hagay Azani, VP Marketing & Sales of Controp, the company is, “pleased that the Vietnamese Navy once again selected us to supply the marine payloads as a follow-on order – a testament to their high level of satisfaction. We thank them for the close cooperation over the years, and believe that this cooperation will expand to include additional projects in the future.”
The iSea-40HD Maritime EO/IR Payload, weighing 29kg, has a thermal camera with continuous optical zoom, a full HD day camera, four gimbals for high stabilisation and an optional laser pointer and laser range finder.
