Three versions of the SandCat are shown here, an open special-operations patrol vehicle, a highly protected patrol version for border security and a police special forces version.  The reconnaissance and patrol vehicle is equipped with a new electro-optical observation system developed by Eldor Communications Technologies. The system, dubbed ELiOS V.M.O.S. comprises a thermal imager, utilizing Opgal R25 thermal cameras with fixed, dual FOV or continuous zoom, a day camera with up to 25-1100 mm telephoto lens, both mounted on a unique pan / tilt payload mounted on a folding, telescopic mast that can rapidly elevate to a height of 90 cm, 1.40 m or up to 3 meters, using electro-hydraulic lift. When the telescopic mast is maintained in the tilted position, the payloads can be operated on the move.
