Sonoma 2511X™

High-Altitude, Long Standoff, EO/IR Imaging system with enhanced Geo-Pointing

  • High-definition, multi-spectral imaging with advanced 11-inch multi-spectral telescope (Mid-Wave IR (MWIR)/Near IR (NIR)/visible)
  • Matched Wide-Field-of-View, High-Definition SAS-3W™ multi-spectral telescope provides context in MWIR, NIR and visible bands
  • Six simultaneous high-definition serial digital interface (HD-SDI) output via fiber interface
  • Patented X-MAST™ precision stabilization provides five-axis stabilization to the entire optical bench
  • Integrated shock isolation reduces impact to sensors and systems
  • Navigation-grade Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) technology - IMU Inside™ - with integrated inertial navigation system and global positioning system receiver for precision geolocation and geopointing and three times improved geopointing/geoestimating over previous systems
  • Integrates with L3Harris’ VPX-based next-generation video processing unit
  • Industry-compatible operator interface reduces learning curve
  • Road-following mode to support mosaic generation whether along a curving road or hot spot monitoring
  • Shared-aperture sensors grouped along turret centerline to optimize field of regard
  • Long focal length, multi-spectral telescope features built on X-MAST™ to deliver crisp images in all bands at superior standoff ranges
  • Bore-sighted context cameras provide simultaneous coverage of the field of view 
  • Six channels of HD-SDI guarantee situational awareness and high resolution - no detail is lost
  • < 2 μradians line-of-sight jitter delivers incredible image clarity
  • Increased reliability as shock loads are reduced to the optical bench
  • World-class precision geopointing and geoestimating, enabling geofocus and advanced step and area scan patterns, now three times better than fielded systems
  • Simultaneous coverage of visible, Short-Wave IR and Mid-Wave IR channels ensure mission performance under a variety of atmospheric conditions
  • 360˚turreted package provides hemispherical coverage, eliminates bow-tie blind spots
  • Shared-aperture sensors are mounted low in the turret minimizing penetration into the airstream for reduced drag and covert operations
  • High-value target detection and tracking
  • Covert observation - can be used in fully enclosed bays
  • Tactical situational awareness
  • Littoral and maritime surveillance
  • Surveillance and reconnaissance
  • Full-motion video
  • Counter-improvised explosive device/homemade explosive detection with optional optical change detection capability
