CONTROP Provides Long-Range Observation Systems for Critical Site Protection in India

CONTROP Precision Technologies, specialising in advanced electro-optics (EO) and infrared (IR) defence and homeland security applications, has recently sold its MEOS Long Range Observation Systems (LOROS) as part of a security solution for critical sites in India. The system was procured by a large Public Sector Undertaking (PSU) for Indian Homeland Security (HLS) applications.

The MEOS LOROS is an advanced, wide area, passive, real time 24/7 EO/IR observation system with panoramic scanning and automatic target detection capabilities. The system includes a medium range or long range Thermal Imaging Camera with Continuous Zoom Lens and a medium range or a long range Day Camera as well as an optional Laser Range Finder (LRF). A unique feature, according to CONTROP, is its open and modular configuration, allowing this portable observation system to be integrated with the specific cameras that best meet the HLS objectives. The MEOS is easily deployable and can be installed on a tripod,a mast or on a fixed structure.

"The MEOS modular EO/IR system is proven for border and coastal security as well as perimeter protection of critical sites including military bases, offshore oil/gas rigs and more," CONTROP's VP Marketing Mr. Johnny Carni told MT ahead of DEFXPO in GOA next week. "We are confident that this purchase will encourage the additional procurement of such systems for use in important defense and HLS applications in India."
