UTC Aerospace Systems’ Cloud Cap Technology TASE500 all HD Imaging System selected by Vulcanair Aircraft for Chilean Navy Search and Rescue programs
UTC Aerospace Systems will deliver Cloud Cap Technology TASE500 imaging systems to Vulcanair Aircraft in support of maritime search and rescue efforts operated by the Chilean Navy.
The TASE500 imaging system will be installed on Vulcanair's P68 Observer 2 aircraft, a twin–engine airplane designed for maritime observation and patrol. The TASE500 payload provides the first all-HD imaging solution giving operators improved situational awareness, an all-digital imaging chain for maximized processing capability and an optimized lens design for enhanced object recognition. All TASE cameras offer a continuous zoom functionality which provides optimal field of view across all zoom levels.
"The addition of the Cloud Cap Technology TASE500 Imaging System to the P68 Observer 2 will allow us to provide a turnkey, high performance, cost efficient solution to the search and rescue market," said Remo De Feo, CEO of Italy's Vulcanair Aircraft. "The all HD imaging system of the TASE500 was a critical requirement in providing the Chilean Navy with superior nighttime imaging as well as long range daylight surveillance."
