Israeli company Controp has launched a new member of its STAMP family of gyro-stabilised miniature EO/IR payloads for UAS at Le Bourget.
The T-STAMP-XR weighs only 3.5 kg and contains a cooled, gyro-stabilised thermal imaging camera with an extremely narrow field of view. It combines a high sensitivity HD day camera, a cooled thermal imaging (TI) camera, and an optional laser designator or laser pointer.
The STAMP family is a series of miniature lightweight ruggedised payloads designed to withstand high-shock landings. With low power consumption they offer a cost-effective solution for small manned and unmanned systems. STAMP payloads have been used on a variety of fixed- and rotary-wing UAS and manned helicopters and light aircraft for surveillance, law enforcement and targeting missions.
Dror Sharon, Controp's chief executive, says the T-STAMP-XR was developed to meet a need for ultra-small, low-weight and low-power payloads for UAS missions that previously required much larger platforms.
