According to Mr. Hagay Azani, CONTROP’s VP Marketing and Sales, “The issue of harsh environmental conditions and limited visibility at certain times of the day and night is critical for our customers. These new channels enable the highest observation capabilities 24/7 and in all weather conditions, including conditions typical of the tropical climate of the Asia Pacific region, which is characterized by high humidity, cloudiness and haze.”
