IAI's TAMAM Division to Supply Advanced Observation Systems to the Israel Navy
Jun 18, 2007
Israel Aerospace Industries' Tamam Division has won a contract for the supply of advanced observation systems to the Israel Navy as part of a comprehensive upgrade of the Navy’s operational capabilities.
The payloads will be integrated with ship weapons and navigation systems, will improve the vessels’ battle capabilities, and allow operations to continue twenty four hours a day in all weather conditions.
The systems being supplied by Tamam are based on the POP (Plug-in Optronic Payload) and MiniPOP payloads, which include advanced day and night cameras (infrared) and laser range finders. The POP systems are based on unique designs combining a plug-in system within a gyroscopically stabilized unit. The plug-in principle is the basis for system upgrades and improvements using more sophisticated electro-optical sensors. All the electro-optical components can be simply removed and replaced in a matter of minutes, without any need for special calibration or adjustment.
Ehud Oren, Director of Optronic Systems at Tamam said that: “It is a privilege for our products to be chosen by the Israel Navy for use in the coming decade.”
Israel Aerospace Industries is a leader in the aerospace and defense industries and is Israel’s largest industrial exporter. IAI’s Tamam Division is a proven supplier of advanced EO payloads for various air platforms, maritime vessels and ground vehicles. These include the LOROS (Long Range Observation System), the MOSP (Multi-mission Optronic Stabilized Payload) family and the lightweight compact POP (Plug-in Optronic Payload).
