Controp’s new line of 7 short, medium and long-range maritime payloads (iSea-10U, 20U, 20, 30, 30HD, 40HD and 50HD) was developed and ruggedised for the challenging and often harsh maritime environment, and they provide solutions for most types and sizes of maritime platforms. Features include continuous IR zoom lens, gyro-stabilised gimbals and multi sensor options, which provide outstanding capabilities. The iSea systems can be installed on RIBs, Patrol Boats, OPVs, Corvettes, Frigates as well as special vessels like Hovercrafts and USVs, and can be integrated with the vessels’ systems. Ideal for manned or unmanned maritime security and defense platforms, the iSea systems are successfully operated and deployed by Special Forces, Law Enforcement, Coast Guard, Search and Rescue (SAR), Anti-Piracy units, and others.

"We are proud to be one of a selected and prestigious group of companies that can boast a truly comprehensive line of maritime EO/IR solutions for modern maritime security, defence and coastal surveillance challenges," Controp VP Marketing, Johnny Carni explained. "Incorporating the most advanced technologies in this field, the iSea is expected to draw a lot of attention and interest from shipyards and maritime integrators as well as relevant End Users."  

Controp has recently won several contracts with Special Maritime Forces of NATO countries in Europe for the iSea-10U and the iSea-30HD maritime surveillance payloads. "With decades of worldwide operational maritime experience on 5 continents and on a large variety of platforms, we are confident that the new iSea line will strengthen our position as a world leader in this field," Carni concludes.
