At Eurosatory, Aselsan is featuring air surveillance and targeting gimbal sight MEROPS (Multi-spectral Extended Range Optical Sight). MEROPS has been designed for observation and targeting applications on drones and other aircraft types, Aselsan writes in a press release.

According to the company, the system can especially perform under smoke and dust. It prioritises medium and short-wave thermal to support dawn and dusk operations. Furthermore, the sight also incorporates image processing technologies including traditional image enhancement and machine vision and AI based algorithms, as well as mission enhancement capabilities such as:

  • moving target identification
  • isotherms
  • false colour identification
  • threat identification
