Abstract
A fourth generation of SWIR based optical detection and warning means is presented as the EL/O–5220 OTHELLO passive Optical Threat Locator, which detects and precisely finds directions towards a source of battle tank gun fire and missile (e.g. Anti-Tank Guided Missiles (ATGMs) Rocket Propelled Grenades (RPGs)) launch events in the battlefield. OTHELLO hardware is described followed by an explanation of some inherent advantages of SWIR imagers as building blocks for optical detection systems mounted on ground military vehicles at harsh and demanding operating conditions. Finally we describe possible application of OTHELLO with radar systems.
