[Avionics Today 09-12-2016] An unnamed Asia-Pacific country has awarded Elbit Systems a contract valued at over $90 million for the supply of Spectro XR advanced electro-optic systems.
Spectro XR is an ultra-long-range, day/night, multi-spectral electro-optical Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) system. At its heart is a large multi-spectral imaging system combining multiple cameras into one, allowing Spectro XR to significantly improve performance without increasing size and weight. The implementation of digital sensors and lasers, with a high level of stabilization aims to provide users with high performance in adverse weather conditions.
The system can be installed on a variety of platforms including rotary and fixed-wing airborne platforms, along with aerostats, naval vessels and land applications. A variety of command and control interfaces enables integration of the Spectro XR with various other systems onboard, such as mission computers, radar, data-links and helmet-mounted tracking systems. The contract will be performed over a four-year period.
