The BAA II camera is the next generation mission-approved observation and reconnaissance system. The sensor head, which can also be operated dismounted from the vehicle on a tripod, combines five high-performance sensors: a 3rd generation thermal imager, a high-resolution CCD camera, a laser rangefinder, a laser target illuminator/pointer and a clip-on laser target designator. The system can be easily integrated into an existing information and command system and can be expanded at any time due to its modular design. An automatic motion detection supports the user even on longer missions. The image fusion function combines the data from the thermal imager and the CCD camera to provide a fused image.
