Defence PSU Bharat Electronics Ltd (BEL) has signed an MoU with Israel-based Elbit Systems Electro-optics-Elop Ltd. Under the agreement, the companies will jointly produce compact multi purpose advance stabilisation system (CoMPASS) for naval helicopter applications.

The CoMPASS is a day-and-night surveillance system that includes a colour TV daylight camera, 3rd Generation 3-5µm FLIR sensor, Laser Target Designator and Rangefinder (LTDRF) and automatic tracking capabilities, as well as command and control capabilities.
