CONTROP is proud to announce that it was recently awarded with the prestigious "Technological Innovation in Aerospace Prize" for the development of the STAMP family of Stabilized Miniature Payloads for Small UAVs. This prize was awarded in recognition and appreciation for CONTROP's contribution to the success of the STAMP project and its significant contribution to national security.
Prior to this, CONTROP was selected by the Israeli Ministry of Defense (MOD) as the Sole Supplier of EO/IR payloads for the Israeli tactical SUAV Sky Rider Program. These STAMP payloads are operational in Israel and worldwide onboard a large variety of different SUAVs and VTOLs.
Recent announcements indicate that India is soon to join other modern countries in future acquisition of massive operational UAVs of various sizes – large, medium and small.
CONTROP believes that the STAMP family is ideally suited for the small - mainly tactical – UAVs. In addition, CONTROP's other stabilized payloads would be ideal for India as they are serving medium and large UAVs worldwide, due to their high quality image and proven reliability.
Hundreds of CONTROP's STAMPs, including the new M-STAMP – a gyro stabilized Multi Sensor Payload for small UAVs and small A/C – were recently procured to an European country for a large scale SUAV program. The M-STAMP has a CCD with Continuous Zoom Lens, Uncooled IR Camera with Dual FOV Lens and Laser Pointer. A future option for this revolutionary payload will be the Uncooled IR Camera with Continuous Optical Zoom Lens.
The M-STAMP payload with multiple cameras has already been provided to satisfied customers in Europe and the USA as well as others due to its proven quality and reliability.
CONTROP is also presenting the HD-STAMP - the first and only known HD High Definition gyro stabilized camera for small UAVs. The new HD-STAMP provides new opportunities for SUAVs, including surveying of power lines and other requirements where a high definition image is required.
CONTROP is bringing both the M-STAMP and the HD-STAMP operating cameras to Aero India 2013 to provide visitors with hands-on operation of these unique, prize winning "chosen payloads". The STAMP family of gyro stabilized miniature payloads also includes the D-STAMP with a CCD camera for daylight applications, the U-STAMP with an uncooled IR dual field-of-view camera for night-time applications and the U-STAMP-Z with a Continuous Zoom Lens.
