CONTROP is bringing the new SPEED-V for the first time to be on demonstration at Eurosatory 2012. The SPEED-V is a lightweight (24kg) EO/IR gyro stabilized system which was specially designed for Mobile Surveillance Vehicle (MSV) while installed on a tall mast or on ground vehicles.
Controp SPEED-V Payload
For manned or unmanned ground vehicles Controp provides the VIEW range of stabilized rigid payloads. The family includes the L-VIEW, with a single sensor and the T-VIEW packing a dual sensor EO/IR on a gyro stabilized mount for day and night observation on board various ground vehicles and armored vehicles. T-VIEW includes two cameras- an uncooled thermal camera with continuous zoom lens and a daytime CCD camera while L-VIEW comprises a single uncooled IR camera with continuous zoom lens.
These payloads were designed to answer a unique field requirement as an aid to the commander and crew of light armored vehicles. The gyro stabilized VIEW payloads enable observation while driving through thick dust, dirt roads, so that the commander can have complete control of the surrounding area in panoramic view, which increases the mobile safety of the troops and provides security of access during movement. Other applications of the L-VIEW and T-VIEW include observation, navigation, driving, situational awareness and force protection while providing real-time video onboard a variety of different land vehicles.
