CONTROP has supplied a significant number of iSea-20 and iSea-30 maritime EO/IR payloads to the Colombian Navy, for installation on the new Colombian Navy OPV-80 and CPV-46 series warships, as part of the T-12 (0.50" CAL) and T-25 (25mm CAL) Remote Control Weapon Stations systems provided by Thor S.A.S.  Some of the first warships to receive this advanced system were the ARC 7 De Agosto, the ARC 20 De Julio and the ARC Punta Espada.

CONTROP spokesperson reported that, "the iSea family of maritime EO/IR camera payloads was carefully chosen by this prestigious customer, and due to customers' satisfaction and the outstanding price / performance ratio, we expect additional ongoing orders in 2016 for the Columbian fleet."

CONTROP’s iSea line of seven 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.
