Sonoma 2111X™

High Altitude, Long Standoff, EO/IR Imaging system

L3 Sonoma EO’s high-performance EO/IR stabilized imaging systems are optimized for high-altitude, long-range surveillance & reconnaissance on airborne platforms. L3's 2111X™ combines world-class X-Mast™ stabilization, long focal length, and shared aperture SAS-11™ lens ensuring mission success through increased standoff and excellent image clarity.

Key Features:
  • High-definition multi-spectral imaging with advanced 11 in. multi-spectral telescope (MWIR/SWIR or MWIR/Visible)
  • Patented X-MAST precision stabilization provides 5-axis stabilization to the entire optical bench
  • Integrated shock isolation reduces impact to sensors and systems
  • IMU-inside technology with integrated INS and GPS receiver for precision geo-location and geo-pointing
  • Integrates with L3 Sonoma’s VPU, the VPX-based next-generation Video Processing Unit
  • Industry-compatible operator interface reduces learning curve
  • Road-following mode to support mosaic generation whether along a curving road or hot spot monitoring

Benefits:

  • Long focal length multi-spectral telescope features built on X-MAST delivers crisp images in all bands at superior standoff ranges
  • < 2 μrads jitter under a variety of conditions
  • Increased reliability as shock loads are reduced to the optical bench
  • World–class precision geo-pointing and geo-estimating, enabling geo-focus and advanced step and area scan patterns
  • Simultaneous coverage of visible, SWIR, and MWIR channels ensure mission performance under a variety of atmospheric conditions
  • 360° turreted package provides hemispherical coverage, eliminates bow-tie blind spots
  • Shared-aperture sensors are mounted low in the turret minimizing penetration into the airstream for reduced drag and covert operations

Applications:

  • High-value target detection and tracking
  • Covert observation - can be used in fully enclosed bays
  • Tactical situational awareness
  • Littoral and maritime surveillance
  • Surveillance and reconnaissance
  • Full-motion video
  • Counter-IED/HME detection with optional Optical Change Detection capability
