Danish company given big responsibility once again
CST is proud to announce that we once again have the pleasure to join a strategic partnership with Thales NL for development of an upgrade of the MIRADOR electro-optical sensor system.
Copenhagen Sensor Technology A/S (CST) and Thales Nederland B.V. (Thales NL) have a long history of collaboration, and after the success with the Thales Goalkeeper close-in weapon systems (CIWS) in which we provided the optical solution, we are proud to have been chosen once again to provide an electro-optical sensor system for the MIRADOR naval observation platform.
The MIRADOR fire control system incorporates the latest technological features such as carbon fiber shell structure and a direct-drive servo system. Thanks to its four sensors MIRADOR is capable of combining optical surveillance and tracking capabilities. It uses two daylight TV cameras (surveillance & tracking), and an IR camera (tracking). An eye-safe laser range finder and an optronic tracking unit ensure that accurate target position indication is carried out. The new and improved upgrade of the MIRADOR electro-optical sensor system will secure an even more precise boresight and optimize the ability to track objects.
Main features of the electro-optical sensor system that CST deliver:
“It is with great pleasure for CST to announce this strategic partnership with Thales NL once again, where we this time will be delivering an upgrade to the MIRADOR electro-optical sensor system.”
– Carsten Høiberg, CEO at CST.
CST has extensive expertise and a proven track record within visible band camera systems as well as the zintegration of sensors to a complete suite or package. Key focus is image processing resources along with speed of information flow through fiber optical transmission. We are a leader in ruggedized electro-optical solutions with a deep know-how in the whole process from design, development, manufacturing and maintenance of electro-optical solutions – and that is why, we often are the preferred partner, when considering new electro-optical solutions.
