Description: Sea Spotter is an advanced ship-based Infrared Search & Track System (IRST) developed by Rafael. Sea Spotter automatically detects and pinpoints both surface and airborne targets and threats around the vessel at supersonic and slow speeds without radar emissions that could be intercepted by the enemy. The system is based in third generation continuous infrared staring technology and state-of-the-art image processing algorithms that decrease the false alarm rate to only one each 24-hour. It has been designed to flawlessly work in conjunction with the vessel's combat system.
Sea Spotter consists of an array of infrared sensors that work passively, ruling out the possibility of giving away the ship's position, while delivering outstanding situational awareness. The sensors are sustained by a central close cycle cooling system. Rafael claims that is newest IRST system is suitable against supersonic and sea-skimming anti-ship missiles, aircraft, helicopters, UAVs, gliding bombs, anti-radiation missiles, ships, submarine telescopes, and fast boats. The Sea Spotter was introduced in December 2006.
