HD Optronic Stabilized Payloads for Unmanned Vehicles

Israel Aerospace Industries’ Tamam Division (IAI/Tamam) has launched a new line of True High Definition (HD) Day and Night Stabilized Optronic Payloads using a 1280 x 1024 detector for the thermal camera and a 1920 x 1080 detector for the day camera in the 14″Phi/15″Phi MOSP3000-HD and the 10″Phi POP300D-HD.

Tamam also introduced the new 8″Phi MiniPOP-HD using a 1920 x 1080 detector for the day camera.

These new high-resolution sensors make Tamam’s systems the optimal solution for wide area scanning and persistent awareness missions as well as for long-range surveillance and targeting applications.

The new systems also include advanced video image processing and compression features that enable the FHDTV to be adapted to any downlink system.

Shaul Shahar, IAI/Tamam’s General Manager said: “We are very proud of these new advanced payloads which combine the legacy of TAMAM’s field-proven payloads with HD technology and state-of-the-art image processing. These HD payloads are a remarkable achievement by our engineering and technical staff and will provide our customers with significant performance improvements while maintaining the original compact packaging.”

• MOSP3000-HD is a 31 kg, one-LRU multi-sensor highly-stabilized EO/IR payload equipped with a Full High Definition 1920 x 1080 detector for the color day camera (FHDTV), a High Definition 1280 x 1024 detector for the thermal camera with a x30 optical zoom and an option for laser designation, laser rangefinder and laser pointer.

• POP300D-HD is a 20 kg, one-LRU multi-sensor stabilized EO/IR payload equipped with a Full High Definition 1920 x 1080 detector for the color day camera (FHDTV), a High Definition 1280 x 1024 detector for the thermal camera and laser designation, laser rangefinder and laser pointer.

• MiniPOP-HD is a 6.5-9 kg (configuration dependent) compact, one-LRU multi-sensor stabilized EO/IR payload equipped with a Full High Definition 1920 x 1080 detector for the color day camera (FHDTV), a 640 x 480 thermal camera, and an option for laser rangefinder, laser pointer and laser designator.
