Laser Illuminator integrated

50m laser illuminator integrated on demand


Long range capability

The EO sensor can detect and identify a NATO priority target from more than 20 km, while the IR can do the same from more than 2 km (following Johnson’s criteria). With both sensors combined, the user can read a vehicle license plate from 700 meters or follow a vehicle from 12 km. The Alpha 800 enables the target to be observed without the observation platform coming into view.


High precision geo location

The ISR system of the ALPHA 800 can detect and define a target with extreme precision thanks to its GEO LOCATION capabilities. All onboard sensors are combined with a high precision Digital Terrain Model to define the GPS coordinates.


Border security like never before

Alpha’s technology complements other fixed and mobile surveillance systems. When several helicopters are flown concurrently, wide geographic areas can be observed.
