The Ulysses II sensor turret.

Singapore-based Omnisense Systems will be discussing at the show its range of electro-optical and infrared (EO/IR) sensor turrets at D&S.

The Ulysses II sensor turret is designed for small, high-speed vessels measuring 380 mm tall and 220 mm wide. It weighs around 25 kg depending on the payload. Typical payloads include a 1280×1024 pixel resolution charge-coupled device (CCD) colour camera with a x12 digital and x36 optical zoom capability, as well as a uncooled 640×480 pixel long-wave infrared (LWIR) infrared sensor.

The Ulysses II can function in temperatures from 0 to 75°C, although an optional heating system enables the system to remain operational in temperatures as low as -30°C.

Sentinel Black is a fourth Generation turret from Omnisense Systems and is day and night-capable incorporating thermal imager with optical and digital zoom which has been designed specifically for maritime and naval applications such as coastal and river surveillance, force protection, special boat operations, search and rescue (SAR), and unmanned surface vehicles (USVs). It also has a large format day/ultra-low light CCD that digitally fuses the day and low light channels in real time.

The Sentinel turret measures 390 mm tall, 340 mm wide, 250 mm deep, and weighs less than 25 kg depending on the payload. It covers 360° in the azimuth and is capable of covering an elevation range from -30 to +40°.
