Rocket Launched Observation System

(Cyberflight Ltd.)

The Parasight G140 Rocket launched, parafoil surveillance system provides low-cost, on-demand surveillance to infantry commanders and special forces. Each Parasight sensor pack unit is packed in a 0.45kg tip attached to the 22cm long, 7.5 cm diameter rocket. The rocket lifts the sensor pack to an altitude of 1,000 4,000 above ground. At the rocket's apogee, the sensor pack separates from the rocket and a parafoil opens, to slow its decent to 3-11 minutes (depending on weather conditions, target location and mission profile) and aim it at the targets of interest. The sensor pack has a Sony View-EX monochromatic video camera, which operates in daylight and at low light level (Lux 0.003), a guidance system, GPS position locator and video data link which transmits the images back to the user. The system is operated by a single operator, by a control station which comprises the sensor controls, communications link, video display and antenna patch.
