BEND, Ore. Octopus ISR's imaging technology includes a full HD 30x optical zoom, global shutter EO sensor, a 15x optical zoom MWIR sensor, laser range finder with up to 20km measuring range, and a laser pointer, designed for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and small manned aviation platforms used for border control, military purposes, and civil applications.

According to the company, the Epsilon 180 surveillance system features a powerful onboard processor with software features including software image stabilization in three axes, automatic target tracking, and moving target indicator.

The Epsilon 180 is designed to offer high image quality with image stabilization performance of less than <50 uRad RMS. The ISR payload is intended to integrate an Inertial Navigation System (INS) for geopointing and real-time target geolocation.

The Epsilon 180’s design is also ruggedized and the payload can be installed on either nose- or belly-mounted positions.
