EOS 500

Outstanding fire control & observation

EOS 500 is a light-weight optronic tracking-system designed 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 targets, thus allowing targets to be changes within fractions of a second.

The new version of EOS 500 is part of the 9LV modular suite of solutions for command and control in naval environments. The 9LV modules are well aligned with open-architecture standards for combat-management systems (CMSs).

Features

The inherent video tracker provides automatic detection of up to four concurrent targets, thus allowing targets to be changes within fractions of a second. The new version of EOS 500 is part of the 9LV modular suite of solutions for command and control in naval environments. The 9LV modules are well aligned with open-architecture standards for combat-management systems (CMSs).

Stand-alone or integrated

The EOS-500 can be provided as:

  • An optimally integrated part of the 9LV CMS
  • A stand-alone fire-control system
  • A stand-alone sight system

Characteristics

  • One single system capable of performing general observation, surveillance with target detection and identification, as well as high-accuracy 3D tracking.
  • A pedestal that carries three electro-optical sensors.
  • A modern design allowing easy upgrades with new sensors.
  • The advanced video tracker providing automatic detection of up to four concurrent targets, allowing the operator to easily acquire and change targets within fractions of a second.
  • The video tracker uses simultaneous input from the TV- and the IR-camera in a data-fusion process

The precision of the system is evident in gunfire performance, in missile laser guidance, in target identification tasks, and in search-and-rescue missions, where the stabilisation and advanced TV and IR cameras provide the operators with a high-quality observation solution.

The EOS-500 utilises similar sensors and the same type of video tracker and target filters as the CEROS 200.
