FALCONEYE IRST – High Resolution Electro-Optical Sensor Suite

Falconeye-IRST ("Infrared Search and Track") is a very high performance electro optical sensor system consists of a High Definition thermal camera, High Definition day TV camera, laser range finder and/or laser target designator. Falconeye-IRST gives the opportunity of 7 days 24 hours 360° panoramic reconnaissance, surveillance, automatic target detection and automatic target tracking.

The Falconeye-IRST consists of

  • High Definiton (HD) Thermal Camera
  • High Definiton (HD) Daylight Camera
  • Lazer Range Finder
  • High Stabilization & Pointing Accuracy Director
  • A deployable MAST

Falconeye-IRST has a capability of positioning the sensor units 360° in azimuth and in between specific angles in elevation axes with the help of Pan/Tilt Unit. High performance thermal cameras and laser range finders can only achieve the system performances while placed on static platforms.  Due to long range target recognition and range finding needs, the Pan/Tilt Unit used in the Falconeye-IRST has an extremely high stabilization accuracy.
