Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has announced the first deliveries of its MOSP3000 (Multi-Mission Optronic Stabilized Payload) systems to a foreign customer for naval missions. The Maritime MOSP3000 is a new member of the MOSP family, designed to be integrated with shipborne weapon and navigation systems, in order to provide observation and targeting capabilities.
Shaul Shahar, General Manager of IAI's TAMAM Division, said: "We are very proud of this new configuration which performs so successfully under the severe environmental conditions required for naval systems. The Maritime MOSP3000 is a remarkable achievement by our engineering and technical staff."
MOSP3000 is a multi-sensor electro-optic and infrared (EO/IR) payload which builds on the successful MOSP concept. The payload has a diameter of 15 inches (38cm), and weighs less than 35 kg.
MOSP3000's open architecture design can accommodate up to five sensors:
-- A variety of TV cameras and optics for day use
-- A variety of thermal imaging cameras based on a large format detector (640x480 pixels)
-- A laser pointer
-- An eye-safe laser range finder (1, 3 or 5 pulses per second).
-- A laser designator
