Tel Aviv: European countries are increasing the capabilities of their coast guard units, in an effort to stop the waves of refugees from Africa and other parts of the world crossing their borders, mainly by sea. This has increased the interest in Israeli developed maritime surveillance systems. Israeli company CONTROP has recently delivered its iSea25HD System to a European Coast Guard.
The iSea25HD has the best of its class gyro stabilization, coupled with powerful continuous optical zoom in both day and thermal imager cameras and a laser range finder (LRF). The iSea25HD operates covertly at a safe distance from its targets, while maintaining “eyes on target” day and night, even in harsh weather conditions. The smooth HMI (Human Machine Interface) and the high performance make the iSea25HD a trusted companion in protecting the EU exposed Southern flank.
“We are pleased to continue our cooperation with a strong European partner, which is responsible, among other things, for SAR activities in the area,” says Hagay Azani, president and CEO of CONTROP. “CONTROP facilitates an innovative technological solution covering both sea and land, day and night, and is proud to be playing a key role in contributing to the saving of lives.”
