ComPASSBharat Electronics Limited (BEL) has received an order at Aero India 2015 from Elbit Systems Electro-Optical Elop Ltd. (Elop), of Israel, for the production of Elop’s Compact Multi-Purpose Advanced Stabilized Systems (CoMPASSTM). This is in addition to an earlier order for the supply of CoMPASS, received by BEL from Elop in 2014.
Previously, BEL had entered into a Agreement with Elop for the joint production and D-Level maintenance of CoMPASS for the Advanced Light Helicopter (ALH) Programme. BEL had absorbed transfer of technology (ToT) for production of CoMPASS in India.
The CoMPASS is a day-and-night surveillance system that includes a colour TV daylight camera, 3rd Generation 3-5 µm Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) sensor, Laser Target Designator and Range Finder (LTDRF) and automatic tracking capabilities, as well as command and control capabilities. Its small dimensions, low weight, high level of stabilisation and coverage angles make it an optimal choice for long-range, day-and-night surveillance, target tracking, fire control applications and search and rescue.
