Controp Precision Technologies Ltd. has sold several electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) surveillance, defense and homeland security solutions to the Israeli Police, the company said. The iSky-20HD (formerly SHAPO-HD) and iSky-50HD (formerly DSP-HD) payloads are to be installed on new helicopters, integrated with Churchill Navigation mission systems.

“We are very proud that the iSky payloads were chosen for Israel Police helicopters. In addition, in recent months CONTROP has also sold several iSky-30HD and iSky-50HD systems to a variety of customers in North America, Asia-Pacific and Africa, for installation on helicopters, fixed-wing aircraft and other platforms,” said Hagay Azani, VP of marketing for Controp. “Incorporating the most advanced technologies in this field, the iSky is expected to draw a lot of attention and interest from military and para-military integrators as well as relevant end users.”
