CONTROP SPEED-LR C-UAS surveillance system

CONTROP Precision Technologies has launched the SPEED-LR, the company’s newest long-range ground observation system for counter-UAS (unmanned aerial system) and other surveillance applications. The fully-digital and stabilised multispectral system is designed to rapidly detect and identify potential threats from increased distances.

The SPEED-LR incorporates many of the features of CONTROP’s top-of-the-range SPEED-ER, including cutting-edge sensor technologies for day, night and low visibility surveillance. It includes a high definition (HD) cooled mid-wave infrared (MWIR) sensor and HD day camera, as well as a short-wave infrared (SWIR) camera that allows users to see effectively and spot potential threats through obscurants such as mist, humidity, fog, dust, or smoke. The SPEED-LR also incorporates advanced line-of-sight stabilisation to ensure sharp imagery even at the narrowest field of view and when fully zoomed in.

Guy Oren, Vice President of International Marketing and Sales at CONTROP Precision Technologies, commented: “This SMART system has multi-tasking capabilities and there is nothing quite like it in the market right now. Being part of the renowned SPEED family, our customers can expect a lot of the same great features that are already present on our other SPEED systems, including exceptional multispectral capability.”

“We see this as a persistent surveillance tool, where the SPEED-LR will be able to act like a passive radar sensor, scanning the environment and automatically detecting multiple targets. We are very proud of the SPEED-LR and the fantastic work that the CONTROP team has done to make this available for our customers, particularly in these challenging times.”
