EOS 500

Outstanding fire control & observation

EOS-500 is a lightweight electro-optical fire control director for use on all naval ships. It is an excellent choice for observation, target identification and fire control. The inherent video tracker provides automatic detection of up to four concurrent threats, enabling the operator to change target within fractions of a second.

EOS-500 includes a stabilised platform with three electro-optical sensors. The modern modular design allows easy upgrades with new sensors.

The high quality stabilisation and advanced TV- and IR-cameras and Laser Range Finder provide the operators with an efficient solution for observation, gun fire, missile laser guidance and target identification.

EOS-500 is capable of tracking all types of threats, including sea skimming missiles. The advanced Saab video tracker uses simultaneous input from the TV- and the IR-camera in a data fusion process.

EOS-500 provides automatic detection of up to four concurrent targets, thus allowing the operator to easily acquire and change targets swiftly. The EOS-500 uses high accuracy 3D-tracking.
