Article Headlines

  • Octopus ISR Systems announced the release of the new Epsilon 140LC compact airborne electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) surveillance system
  • Featuring industry-leading size, weight, power and cost (SWAP-c) specifications, the Epsilon 140LC combines cutting-edge sensor technology with high precision geo-location to provide true next-generation performance for Small UAVs and similar platforms
  • The Epsilon 140LC integrates a high-definition 30x zoom EO sensor and a top-of-the-line LWIR sensor with 25mm / F 1.0 lens into a single compact system weighing less than 1.3 kilograms
  • This high level of integration enables smaller UAV platform producers to use professional high-performance surveillance systems without sacrificing endurance at an affordable price

Overview & Comments

  • Small systems (Group 1-3) are on the rise as their flight performance parameters are enabling them to carry larger payloads for longer flight endurances
  • The specific payload will enable Group 1 systems to carry a more capable EO/IR in reference to current systems
  • But more so, it will enable Group 2-3 UAS to carry a smaller EO/IR while maintaining the same mission capabilities thus it will not sacrifice endurance, as mentioned above, or will enable allocating precious weight for other requirements
  • In average, Group 3 EO/IR payloads weigh 3-4 kg, thus the additional 1.5-2.5 kg (in average) are equal to a second payload (SIGINT, Comm Relay etc.), advanced datalinks such as SATCOM and more
