Incorporating the most advanced technologies in this field, the iSky is expected to draw a lot of attention and interest from military and para-military integrators as well as relevant End Users.”

CONTROP’s line of six (6) medium and long-range aerial payloads (iSky-20, 20HD, 30, 30HD, 40 and 50HD) was uniquely developed for the challenging and often turbulent aerial environment and they provide solutions for most medium and long-range aerial surveillance platforms. Features include a continuous optical zoom lens in the day (or high definition-HD) and thermal imaging (SD/HD) cameras, gyro-stabilized gimbals and multi sensor options including Eyesafe Laser Range Finder (ELRF) and/or Laser Pointer, all of which provide outstanding capabilities. The iSky systems can be installed on helicopters, fixed wing aircraft (A/C) and unmanned aerial systems (UAS), and may be integrated with the platforms’ systems. Ideal for manned or unmanned airborne platforms, all of the iSky systems include real-time Image Enhancement Features, built in INS, automatic target tracking and are successfully operated, fully integrated and deployed by Search and Rescue (SAR), Border Surveillance, Law Enforcement, Special Operations, Maritime Patrol and Force Protection Units.
