Description

Epsilon 175 is the smallest four-sensor MWIR gimbal that combines cutting-edge sensor technology and high accuracy of geo-location and moving map software. Providing high-quality video with ultimate stability even at 45x optical zoom for daylight camera and up to 15x continuous optical zoom for MWIR camera, it enables the system to operate in any lighting conditions. Its robust structure is optimized for handling very demanding conditions, including shock during landing and rapid acceleration during takeoff.

 

  • Onboard Image Processing. Epsilon 175 is capable of detecting its target day and night from the distance of up to 14 km*. Its superior image quality combined with exceptional stabilization performance makes it a perfect solution for detecting and identifying targets at long range. The onboard processing leads to a rock-solid target tracking performance and eliminates communication latency issues. Epsilon 175 requires lower bandwidth datalinks and high-quality video stream along with snapshots can be stored in HD quality onboard.

  • Target Tracking. The new generation Epsilon 175 is capable of hands-free tracking of moving objects day and night. Once the operator allocates the target and zooms in, regardless of the aircraft movement direction, the onboard processor holds the target in the center of the video screen. Epsilon 175 is capable of identification from significantly longer distances than other systems of this size and weight.
  • Rugged, Lightweight, and Environmentally Sealed. Epsilon 175 is IP64 rated, so can be operated in any conditions. Its environmentally sealed construction will protect electronics from dust and heavy rain. The advanced aluminium structure is very robust and optimized for demanding applications were the gimbal needs to handle shock and rapid accelerations. Epsilon 175 can handle routine parachute recoveries, net recoveries, belly landings and catapult launches with ease.
  • Direct Drive Stabilization. Direct drive torque motor stabilization produces stable video even at 45x optical zoom or up to 1.3° vertical field of view.
  • Four Sensors. Epsilon 175 is available with multiple sensors, including global shutter HD daylight sensor with a resolution of 1280×720p, high sensitivity 640px512p cooled MWIR sensor with a unique 18–275 mm, F5.5 lens, laser rangefinder as well as laser illuminator.
  • Electronic Video Stabilization. Electronic stabilization with roll correction removes the high-frequency jitter often found on small unmanned aircraft platforms. This significantly reduces the operator workload and allows to concentrate on the mission objective.
  • H.264 Internal Encoder. The video is encoded with H.264 compression format to support IP datalink options and to reduce datalink system bandwidth requirement.
  • ITAR-free. Epsilon 175 is non–ITAR product for maximum exportability and is available worldwide.
  • Plug and Play. Simply connect the Epsilon 175 to power, network and serial communication cable – and it’s ready to use. No need for any additional time-consuming integration.
