ECA Group, within the framework of its wide cooperation with Dacon Norway, had participated to the initial development of the Robinca inspection module.
Robinca is a gun barrel inspection and measurement system which, on real time, permits to confirm the battle readiness of a gun barrel or assess its wear life time.

Inspecting Gun barrels contributes to safety for investments and personnel by discovering developing degradations. It contributes to maintain the operational precision of a gun by reducing the risk of accidents due to phasing out the systems with overuse of worn barrels.
ECA group has been awarded the contract for the supply of two hemispherical viewing inspection cameras DTR 65 HRC, thus contributing to the on-going upgrade of the Robinca Gun Barrel system.

This swivelling head colour TV camera features the “DomeTilt-Rotate” process : 220° tilt and unlimited rotation under a transparent dome, with a cold light source mounted on the viewing head. The light made of Ultra Brite LED’s with 50 000 hours life time, combined with a high resolution and sensitivity electronic block, provides an incomparable chromatic fidelity and excellent quality images.
ECA Group has entered an order for two DTR 65 HRC cameras. The system was delivered at the end of July, 2017.
