Onboard image processing

Epsilon 140LC has state of the art onboard image processing capability. The onboard processing leads to a rock-solid target tracking performance and eliminates any communication latency issues.

Its processed video reduces the data rate and requires lower bandwidth datalinks, which is of extreme importance for modern UAVs.

The video stream along with snapshots can be stored in HD quality onboard the Epsilon 140LC.

Target tracking

Epsilon 140LC is capable of hands-free tracking of moving objects. The operator can allocate the target and zoom in, while the onboard processor will hold the target in the centre of the video screen, regardless of the aircraft movement direction.

This is a fundamental feature for long-range surveillance, monitoring applications and law enforcement applications. Target tracking is paramount in applications where the aircraft is moving, and when the object of interest is moving relative to the ground.

Rugged and lightweight, environmentally sealed design

You can operate the Epsilon 140LC in any conditions – IP64 rated, it has environmentally sealed construction and will protect electronics from dust and heavy rain. The one-piece composite dome design is very robust and optimized for demanding applications were the gimbal needs to handle shock and rapid accelerations.

Epsilon 140LC will handle routine parachute recoveries, net recoveries, belly landings and catapult launches with ease.

Plug and play

Epsilon 140LC can be installed in either nose- or belly-mounted positions, offering installation design flexibility for the integrators.

When mounted, simply connect Epsilon 140LC to power, network and serial communication cable – and it’s ready to use. No need for any additional time-consuming integration.
