FALCONEYE – Electro-Optical Sensor System

In order to enhance the mission performance during day-night and adverse weather conditions, ASELSAN has designed an Electro-Optical Sensor System called FALCONEYE which comprises an advanced Thermal Imaging System and a high performance Day TV Sensor. Discrimination of threats, by using detection, recognition and identification criterias, is the major function attained by this surveillance systems.

Having a Target Acquisition System, FALCONEYE provides user precise target coordinates and exact location of the threat. In addition, the system has a Laser Pointer in order to illuminate the detected target to the troops carrying the night vision equipment.

The system is easily operated via an ergonomically designed control unit. It uses rechargeable batteries. The system can also be powered by 220 VAC.

FALCONEYE uses the state-of the art technology and offers different sensors within a compact and rugged solution. It can be utilized on a tripod as stationary or can be mounted on different platforms such as on vehicle.
