Turkish defence firm ASELSAN is featuring the specially designed next generation air surveillance and targeting gimbal sight MEROPS (Multi-spectral Extended Range Optical Sight) for the first time at the Eurosatory today.
With the ever-evolving developments in drones and rotary aircrafts, ASELSAN has designed MEROPS as a game changer for observation and targeting applications on drones and other aircraft types.
“MEROPS’ design philosophy focuses on the real-world requirements of the armed forces under the combat situations. So, users can easily achieve a “Crystal Clear View” with the MEROPS under all possible viewing conditions. ” said Chairman, President and CEO of ASELSAN, Prof Dr Haluk Görgün.
The system can especially perform under smoke and dust. It prioritises medium and short-wave thermal to support dawn and dusk operations. These features make the MEROPS targeting sight an adverse conditions operational asset with an enhanced performance.
Furthermore, the sight also incorporates the latest in image processing technologies including traditional image enhancement as well as the latest in machine vision and AI based algorithms, as well as mission enhancement capabilities such as moving target identification, isotherms, false colour identification and threat identification. –shp/adj/aaa (Image: ASELSAN)
