ISRAEL - New Electro-Optical Surveillance System

Arno Froese

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) introduced a new electro-optical long-range surveillance system—the MegaPOP.

The new payload is designed for land applications, such as marine or land border control, surveillance of sensitive facilities, or any other operational mission that requires especially lengthy surveillance performance, as well as high-definition vision capabilities with a system that uses several sensors simultaneously, the company said in a statement.

“It offers an extraordinary range of sensors that can be used together and a range of laser capabilities. Additional system features include digital tracking, specialized image processing, and additional methods of data processing and automating surveillance capabilities. A built-in gyro stabilizing system ensures stable imaging under all environmental conditions,” it said.

“With MegaPOP, our customers will benefit from advanced and improved surveillance performance in every arena that demands uncompromising image quality, tough weather conditions, and optical threat detection in especially long ranges. MegaPOP offers a new standard to the global ER/IO market. We are proud to provide our global clients with another advanced solution.”, 17 February 2021

Arno's Commentary

When one looks at the Middle East and North Africa on a world map, Israel is surrounded by enemy countries or those who do not recognize its existence. The exceptions are Egypt and Jordan.

There seems to be no other country in the world that has to be alert 24 hours a day, because of non-friendly neighboring countries. Yet Israel’s high-tech continues to make up for its small size and the great burden of defense.

What is Israel’s future? Zechariah gives us the answer: “Thus saith the Lord of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you” (Zechariah 8:23).
