The ARGOS-8 is an 8” class airborne electro optical system suitable for ISR (observation) and ISTAR (targeting) operations on typical group-2 and group-3 unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
The mechanically stabilized EOS is fitted with 3 sensors. Offering day and night operation for observation as well as target range finding and designation using the semi active laser designator. Various software functions such as video auto-tracker with correlation and scene tracking are standard. The integral INS provides accurate geo-location information of the targets. The STANAG compliant meta-data inclusive video can be easily integrated with other mapping and command and control software, or used with the optional supplied mapping and mission software suite. Digital stabilisation for the video images is also available in ISR mode.
