CONTROP Sight Box payloadCONTROP Precision Technologies, a developer of electro-optics and IR imaging solutions for defense and homeland security, has announced the launch of SIGHT Box, a variant of the company’s SIGHT payload with all sensors contained within a single enclosure. The SIGHT Box line features three camera configurations – 25E, 15E and 10E – and is designed for the harsh conditions encountered by armoured combat vehicles, remote weapons stations and UGVs (unmanned ground vehicles), such as sand, dust, extremes of temperature, intense movement and physical shock and vibration. The payloads allow operators to obtain and maintain an accurate and stabilized line-of-sight to the target.

The SIGHT Box features all the imaging capabilities of the other entries in the SIGHT line of payloads including a high-performance Thermal Imaging (TI) camera using a Cooled or Uncooled IR detector with a continuous zoom lens, High Definition (HD) Color Day camera with a continuous zoom lens, and an Eyesafe Laser Range Finder (ELRF). The payloads also provide a picture-in-picture function for simultaneous viewing of day and thermal imaging videos.

In addition to these off-the-shelf solutions, remote weapons station and armoured fighting vehicle integrators and manufacturers also have the option of integrating other specific camera types to create a custom solution for specific applications.

Ra’anan Shelach, VP of Marketing at CONTROP, commented: “We continue to listen attentively to the needs of our customers around the world and their end users. Our flexibility to satisfy particular requirements or specifications enables us to deliver cost-effective solutions that do not compromise the system’s operational capabilities. The SIGHT Box is just one example of this.”
