Elbit Systems Introduces COAPS-L, Converting the Acclaimed Sight into a Lightweight ISTAR Payload

  • COAPS-L provides light platforms with the ISTAR capabilities and situational awareness of Armored Fighting Vehicles

Elbit Systems unveils COPAS-L, a new Electro-Optical (EO) payload for Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR). COAPS-L is a miniaturized configuration of the Company’s Commander Open Architecture Panoramic Sight (COAPS) that is in service onboard Main Battle Tanks and Armored Fighting Vehicles (AFV) around the world.

The new payload will be showcased for the first time during the Eurosatory 2022 as part of the Elbit Systems’ display (Hall 6, D567) and integrated onboard an Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) as part of the Roboteam presentation (Hall 5B, A-35B).

With small dimensions and weighing only 40kg, COPAS-L provides light platforms such as light tactical vehicles, UGVs and surface vessels with AFV-level ISTAR capabilities. The COPAS-L payload operates either as an independent ISTAR payload or combined with the platform’s weapon station.
