UAV Vision expands Camera Gimbals range

16th September 2011 - 10:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


UAV Vision has released the latest in their growing range of low cost, light weight Camera Gimbals. The new addition to the product line is the CM160 High Resolution Stills Gimbal, suitable for a vast number of applications including, but not limited to:

* Mapping
* Infrastructure inspection (from air ground or sea)
* Precision surveillance tasks, e.g. narcotics eradication and other law enforcement applications

The Gimbal provides 16 megapixel still images at up to 3 frames per second through a GigE / ethernet interface, while also streaming EO video. This provides a user with the ability to manoeuvre the Gimbal and record video imagery, while collecting high resolution still snapshots for the application at hand.
All these features are housed in the trusted CM160 gimbal and boasts all the typical features of this proven UAV Vision gimbal - IP66 (water and dust proof), no ITAR/export restrictions, lightweight, low cost, gyro stabilised - view all features here.

The Gimbal is suitable for a range of applications, on almost any platform. The CM160 Gimbal is currently deployed on many platforms, including UAVs (rotary and fixed wing), manned aircraft (fixed wing, gyrocopters/gyroplanes, helicopters), and marine surface vessels. Current testing is being undertaken on ground vehicle platforms.

We are developing advanced features into our AI System software to allow automatic high resolution still snapshots to be taken. This will be of huge benefit to mapping, surveillance, narcotics, and law enforcement type applications where large areas are required to be captured with high resolution imagery. The system will automatically capture overlapping GEO-REFERENCED images for later analysis.

The operator is able to see exactly where images have been captured via overlays, with options to toggle them on or off in relation a moving map displaying a matching position. The user also has the ability to navigate through, and interact with (pan, zoom etc), previously captured images to see if the required objects of interest have been captured successfully.
