SOFIC 2019: Laser Designation Made to Fly Smaller

Collins Aerospace TASE Imaging Systems detect, identify, locate and target from Group ll and lll UAVs

The TASE400 LD Day/Night Imaging with Laser Designator offers battlefield situational awareness with targeting capabilities though all periods of visibility. Collins Aerospace TASE Imaging Systems 7in (diameter) SWaP+T (size, weight and power) sensor package offers great daytime video performance with capability to locate, identify and engage long-range targets via a 2-axis stabilised, STANAG 3733 compliant laser designator, SD mid-wave infrared (MWIR) with continuous zoom integrated GPS/INS and onboard video processing at 10.5lbs (4.76 kiloggrammes).

TASE Imaging Systems have over 500,000 operational hours and are a leading source of real time intelligence to the soldier and first responders. The company’s payloads collect full motion video utilising multiple sensors in support of intelligence operations. These systems provide solutions to complex tactical situations through the use of high definition and unique imaging solutions. When SWaP is priority, Collins Aerospace TASE Imaging Systems is a leader in creating sound solutions in demanding environments.

The system features day light camera (Continuous Optical Zoom: 31x; HFOV: 55.7-1.94°) and MWIR camera (Continuous Optical Zoom: 10x; Continuous Digital Zoom: 4x; MWIR: 3-5µm; Resolution: 640×512; HFOV: 22-2.2 ° continuous) with continuous optical zoom down to 2 degrees field of view, STANAG 3733 compliant laser designator, onboard GPS/INS – no external IMU needed for geo-pointing, Fiber Optic Gyro (FOG) stabilisation, common control and operator interface across the TASE family, environmentally sealed and onboard image processing capable of target tracking, scene steering and electronic image stabilisation. Furthermore, the ViewPoint payload software features complete control of TASE payloads -integrated moving map, real-time mosaicing, Path-Track, and video recording. The illuminator features a narrow beam class IIIb laser at 830nm (NVG band), 150mW max.
