Description: The Selex Galileo EOST 46 is a high performance, stabilized passive electro-optical surveillance and tracking system suitable for manned and unmanned fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft. This multi-sensor payload is designed to provide observation, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities. The EOST 46 consists of a day and night thermal imager (Erica Plus) operating in the medium infrared wavelength spectrum 3-5 or 8-12 micrometers, a daylight zoom TV color camera and a long-range color or black and white TV camera (LRTVCC) for target identification. Optionally, the turret can be equipped with a laser rangefinder.

Airborne platforms equipped with this electro-optical sensor can perform all-weather maritime patrol, search and rescue (SAR), coast guard and police operations and land force protection missions. Basically, EOST 46 has a better thermal imager than EOST 45 multi-sensor payload. To date, the Selex Galileo EOST 46 turret has been successfully integrated on the Piaggio P166 aircraft, AgustaWestland AW109 Power helicopter, Alenia Aeronautica Falco Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV).
