German Army Deploys Carl Zeiss Panoramic Reconnaissance and Surveillance Systems To Protect FOB

Panoramic Reconnaissance and Surveillance Systems by Carl Zeiss

Panoramic reconnaissance and surveillance systems by Carl Zeiss Optronics GmbH protect the German forward operating bases (FOBs) in northern Afghanistan. The German army has ordered them to meet immediate deployment requirements. Comparable systems by Carl Zeiss Optronics have monitored the surroundings of the three existing German army outposts for years.

Forward operating bases are temporary bases with a considerably more basic structure than bivouacs, and soldiers carry out their duty under the most difficult conditions. They cannot rely on the comprehensive protection as at an army outpost. It is therefore important to monitor what’s going on outside the base at all times, so that possible movement of suspect people and vehicles can be detected. The panoramic reconnaissance and surveillance systems by Carl Zeiss are available to facilitate this not only in the immediate surroundings but over a distance of several kilometers as well.

Because their construction is identical to other reconnaissance and surveillance systems in the field, logistics during deployment becomes considerably easier. The panoramic reconnaissance and surveillance systems consist of high-resolution daylight target observation and thermal imaging cameras as well as a system for situation reports. Comparable systems are already used worldwide on thousands of kilometers of borders.
