The iSea-20 and iSea-30 devices were provided for installation on the military’s new OPV-80 and CPV-46 warships as part of Thor SAS’ T-12 and T-25 remote control weapon stations systems. The iSea line of seven short-, medium- and long-range maritime payloads were developed and ruggedized for harsh maritime environments with continuous IR zoom lenses, gyrostabilized gimbals and multisensor options.

Controp is a developer of electro-optical/IR gyrostabilized camera systems for air, land and sea surveillance, and defense and homeland security applications.
