MICRO TACTICAL AEROSTAT
Hawk Eye is an advanced, lightweight unmanned tactical aerostat, mounted observation system designed especially for stand-off, wide coverage air observation. Based on unique patented electro-optic technology, Hawk Eye provides quick access to security-related information with a very high quality aerial imaging capability.
Traditional Semi Active Laser (SAL) guided munitions use 4-quadrant (4Q) seekers to detect the designator’s laser spot. Shilat’s revolutionary technology replaces the 4Q sensor (basically a camera with 4 pixels) with a high-resolution image sensor. This approach overcomes many of the drawbacks of legacy seekers, and brings laser guidance into munitions of wide circulation.
NIGHT VISION MONOCULAR
LOW LIGHT LEVEL
Our cameras are based on a proprietary low-noise high-sensitivity CMOS image sensor and built-in smart noise reduction algorithms. This combination provides Low Light Level imaging that is comparable or better than image intensifier based night vision devices. These cameras support various low-cost night vision solutions such as monocular, goggles, weapon sights etc.
