Instro's Remote Observation Support System provides sensor OEM's a complete off the shelf solution for users needing a highly portable, rapidly deployable remote surveillance capability for border control and base protection.


Designed for long duration observation and target location missions, the console ergonomics and intuitive user interface with soft keys arranged in convenient groups help ensure operators remain productive in the most demanding of environments.


The ROSS2 system supports a range of sensors from leading EO vendors and is readily customised for different end-user languages.


For most situations, remote operation via the supplied 25m system cable is the preferred option and simplest to deploy with a single back-pack containing all system components.


When greater stand-off is needed for reconnaissance missions, the optional wireless kit provides users with full remote control of all the sensor's MMI and line of sight while watching and recording video from the convenience of a safe location, a kilometre or more away.
