It can detect a man-sized target almost 6km away. It is available with a powerful dual field of view or a continuous zoom that provides operators with best situational awareness in a variety of defence and security applications. Advanced features provide this imager with great flexibility and versatility.

Electronic continuous zoom from 0.9 to x12 is available combined with control of Polarity, NUC, image flip, manual gain and level. Input voltage is 24V +/- 8V meeting MIL-STD 1275. Command and control is via RS422 or RS232 with Pelco D as an option.

The engine offers standard video and RS-170 outputs and video techniques such as edge enhancement, local DRC, time domain filter for video enhancement. The casing is to IP67 ensuring the camera is ruggedised to withstand the harshest weather and environmental conditions, including rain, direct sunlight, high humidity and dust. Shock and vibration complies with MIL - STD - 810F so it is suitable for military vehicles. The camera can be fixed, mounted or integrated into a pan and tilt device.

Secured within a metal protective enclosure, this engine runs at full frame rate and works in temperatures from -40º to 60º and complies with MIL-STD 810F/461D and MIL-STD 810F. A major advantage is that the Golan is non ITAR so you can have full frame rates subject to a EUD.
