The new cameras will be integrated on the Mil Mi-17, Mi-24, Bell 407 and Eurocopter EC-145 helicopters. Moreover, the company has also signed a contract for the provision of CONTROP Quad-HD High Definition Multi Sensor Payload, to an Asian customer.

The DSP-HD Dual Sensor Payload includes a thermal imaging camera with CONTROP’s proprietary continuous zoom lens and image enhancement features, a Full High Definition Day Zoom Camera, Full HD Daylight Spotter channel and option eyesafe laser rangefinder or optional laser pointer. Should the customer require it, the system could be offered with a SWIR long-range camera, in place of the Full HD Daylight Spotter Chanel.

The Quad-HD Lightweight Multi Sensor Payload includes a thermal imaging camera with CONTROP’s proprietary continuous zoom lens and image enhancement features, a high sensitivity Colour High Definition Zoom Camera, optional eyesafe laser range finder, optional laser illuminator or optional laser pointer.

CONTROP’s VP of Marketing, Johnny Carni said "the recent orders were received after a thorough evaluation process, where our systems were selected due to their outstanding gyro-stabilization, image quality and very attractive and competitive price. The systems' thermal imager with a continuous zoom lens make them ideal for day and night surveillance applications.  The new addition of the HD camera makes these reputable payloads an outstanding solution for even the most challenging surveillance and observation requirements. We offer these fully gyro-stabilized and low weight camera payloads at very competitive prices, providing an unmatched price/performance ratio.
