On-board Image Processing

Epsilon 140 has state of the art on-board image processing capability. The on-board processing leads to a rock-solid target tracking performance and eliminates any communication latency issues.

Its processed video reduces the data rate and requires lower bandwidth data-links, which is of an extreme importance for modern UAVs. The video stream along with snapshots can be stored in HD quality on-board the Epsilon 140.

 

Target Tracking

Epsilon 140 is capable of hands-free tracking of moving objects. The operator can allocate the target and zoom in, while the on-board processor will hold the target in the center of the video screen, regardless of the aircraft movement direction.

This is a fundamental feature for long-range surveillance, monitoring applications and law enforcement applications. Target tracking is paramount in applications where the aircraft is moving and when the object of interest is moving relative to the ground.

 

Rugged and Lightweight, Environmentally Sealed Design

You can operate the Epsilon 140 in any condition — IP64 rated, it is environmentally sealed construction and will protect electronics from dust and heavy rain.

The one-piece composite dome design is very robust and optimized for demanding applications where the gimbal needs to handle shock and rapid accelerations. Epsilon 140 will handle routine parachute recoveries, net recoveries, belly landings, and catapult launches with ease.

 

Direct Drive Stabilization

Direct drive torque motor stabilization produces stable video even at 30x optical zoom or up to 1.3 degree vertical field of view.

 

Dual Sensor Options

Epsilon 140 is available with multiple sensors, including global shutter HD daylight sensor, as well as a high sensitivity 640×480 IR night sensor with a unique 60mm IR lens.

 

Electronic Video Stabilization

Electronic stabilization with roll correction, removes the high frequency jitter often found on small unmanned aircraft platforms. This significantly reduces the operator workload and allows the operator to concentrate on the mission objective.

 

 

Non-ITAR

Epsilong 140 is a non-ITAR product and is available worldwide.

 

Scene Steering

Epsilon will automatically hold the video centered on the scene, independent of the aircraft movement, even at tele-zoom setting.

 

H.264 Internal Encoder

The video is encoded with H.264 compression format to support IP datalink options and to reduce datalink system bandwidth requirement.

 

Retraction Mechanism

Epsilon 140 is available with a lightweight retraction mechanism as well as matched vibration isolators. The retraction mechanism weight is 420 grams, with a rugged design and is suitable for high acceleration catapult launches and parachute recoveries.

 

Plug and Play

Simply connect the Epsilon 140 to a power, network and serial communication cable – and its ready to use. No need for any additional time consuming integration.

 

Average lead-time is 6-8 weeks.
