 - June 15, 2009, 8:00 AM

Israeli EO/IR expert Controp has added a number of new products to its extensive range of sensor payloads, and they are on display here on its stand in the Israeli National Pavilion. Leading the debutants is T-STAMP, the latest member of its STAMP family of lightweight payloads for small aircraft, UAVs and helicopters. T-STAMP combines three systems (cooled or uncooled continuous zoom thermal imager, CCD TV camera and laser pointer) into a seven-inch diameter stabilized payload with a weight of just over six pounds.

Other Controp products on show include A-View, a compact EO/IR system with helicopter application. As well as providing an observation and navigation aid, A-View is designed to aid flight safety by providing imagery in poor visibility, landing zone verification, tail rotor clearance and slung cargo monitoring.
