    (Infrared Search and Track)

    한국형 전투기 적외선 탐지∙추적 장치 (KF-21 IRST) 제품
    Detects and tracks air targets and provides target information
    IRST System provides detection and tracking of air threats thru infrared sensor-based wide area search. This electro-optic equipment provides such information as direction and elevation as well as infrared images of approaching threats including enemy fighter plane or air-defense missiles, etc.
    Hanwha Systems’ IRST System utilizes passive sensor(infrared), which allows for search and tracking of targets during both day and night times under all weather conditions while not being detected by air threats.
    • Provides azimuth and elevation information and infrared image information of air threats such as enemy plane and air defense missiles.
    • Performs stealth operation under the emission control situation.
    • Utilizes passive sensor(infrared sensor)to provide target detection and tracking functions at both day and night times without the risk of being detected by the enemy.

    EOTS for Anti-Aircraft Gun
    Wheeled Vehicle
    (Electro-Optical Tracking System)

    차륜형 대공포 전자광학탐색추적장치 (EOTS) 제품
    EOTS mounted on anti-aircraft gun wheeled vehicle system. When the external air defense system makes target allocation, EOTS is directed towards the allocated targets to detect and identify the targets and provide acquired target information, so that air-aircraft gun can engage with them. When the link with the external air defense system is blocked, EOTS can be switched to a stand-alone mode to make automatic target detection and tracking for a certain range as defined, or for all directions.
    • Small-sized, light weight structure to be easily mounted on various platforms
    • Fast automatic detection and precision tracking for all directions(360° degree angles) or for 45° degree angles of defined range
    • Search and track of small sized unmanned aircraft
    • Can be connected to external air defense network or operate stand-alone air defense mode with 360° degree angle of all direction observation
    • Modular design that allows for easy replacement of components
