The AUDS EO System is hosted as a removable EO sensor pod that easily attaches to the AUDS positioner, which is based on an in-service two-axis stabilised mount. The AUDS positioner has been designed to accommodate a wide range of sensors and payloads and offers excellent stabilisation performance, allowing high magnification sensors to be fitted for observation of small and fast moving targets at extreme ranges. The azimuth axis has a centrally mounted special signal and coaxial slip-ring assembly to allow continuous rotation at speeds up to 90°/s.
The AUDS EO sensor pod employs a dual camera system, comprising a medium wave thermal imager (TI) and a high definition (HD) daylight camera. Additional sensors or active elements can be provided within the pod.
The TI is coupled with the latest generation of advanced image processing electronics to deliver superior imaging performance in addition to enhanced narrow FoV ‘full resolution e-zoom’ capability.
The third-generation Piranha 46 daylight TV camera is fully sealed and ruggedized for harsh environments. The camera has a built-in IR cut filter which can provide good low light functionality for imaging at dusk and in the dark.
The modular configuration allows easy, tool-less assembly and provides simplicity for maintenance and repair; all EO sensors can be easily accessed and removed using standard tools (e.g. Allen keys).
