Airborne thermal camera improves military surveillance

The European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company has purchased Cedip Infrared Systems’ miniature thermal camera for use in its new Tracker unmanned aerial vehicle.

The Tracker will be used in civil and military reconnaissance and surveillance, to provide remote identification and tracking of targets and attack success analysis. Each system is composed of two airborne vehicles, one of which will contain the thermal camera.

Pierre Potet, President of Cedip Infrared Systems, commented: ‘Our technological advances have already captured the attention of several major suppliers of tactical UAV systems.’ Further contracts are expected from the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company in 2008, following the successful delivery of current orders.
