Octopus ISR partners with SkyIMD

1st November 2016 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Octopus ISR Systems and SkyIMD have signed a strategic partnership agreement that will see SkyIMD integrate the Epsilon range of gimbals into its pods for the manned aviation market, Octopus ISR announced on 1 November.

SkyIMD designs and markets remote sensing and aerial imaging solutions for manned aerial sensor and camera aircraft. Octopus ISR’s gyro-stabilised micro gimbals will be integrated into these platforms’ FAA/EASA/ANAC certified pods under this partnership.

SkyIMD will also distribute Octopus ISR Systems products and provide customer support for unmanned industry customers within the US, including integration assistance. 

Konstantins Krivovs, business development manager of Octopus ISR Systems, said: ‘Over the previous year, we have received numerous inquiries about the possibility of equipping small manned aircraft with our Epsilon payloads. Customers appreciate the size, simplicity, and advanced functionality of our payloads, not to mention the price which may be several times less than traditional manned aviation payloads. 

‘Working together with SkyIMD provides us with the possibility to expand our offering for manned aviation and provide certified solutions fully compliant with industry regulation.’

Octopus ISR Systems specialises in the development and production of gyro-stabilised gimbals, IP data links, tracking antenna systems and portable ground control stations.
