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


CONTROP Precision Technologies Ltd – a company specializing in advanced electro-optics (EO) and infrared (IR) defense and homeland security solutions – announces the sale of Long Range Observation Systems (LOROS) to be used as part of a security solution for critical sites in India.

The MEOS Modular Long-Range EO/IR Day/Night Observation System was procured by a large Public Sector Undertaking (PSU) for Indian Homeland Security (HLS) applications. The MEOS System 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 of the MEOS pan and tilt system 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.

CONTROP's VP Marketing Mr. Johnny Carni added that "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. We are confident that this purchase will encourage the additional procurement of such systems for use in important defense and HLS applications in India".
