USG-212 EO/IR gimbal

USG-212 EO/IR multi-sensor gyro-stabilized gimbal was designed to be used on UAVs and small manned aircraft. The gimbal is equipped with a Full-HD Sony block camera with 30x optical zoom and a high-quality IR camera. It is sealed and can be operated in any weather conditions. Optionally, an onboard image processing unit is available, adding features like target tracking, coordinates lock, and video stabilization. The anti-vibration damping system eliminates vibrations from the airframe. Even while using the 30x zoom, the image stays clear and stable.

Digital video processing module

On-board digital video processing module includes advanced features such as target and scene tracking, digital video stabilization, onboard recording, Full-HD live-streaming, and much more.

Easy-to-use payload control software

The mission control software allows to control all gimbal features, enables moving map, detection, analysis, and identification of targets, creation of objects on the map, generation after-flight reports, and transfer to external sources via API. In addition, the augmented reality feature can overlay street names and objects right on the live video.

USG-212 EO/IR gimbal for ISR missions

Here's footage of the USG-212 EO/IR gimbal installed on a PD-2 VTOL fixed-wing UAV. USG-212 gimbal is a great tool for ISR applications. It is powered by significant ground control software allowing the payload operator to be more effective and saving a lot of time preparing the report after the mission. 

Kestrel Land MTI software

Due to the capabilities of the Kestrel Land MTI software solution, the USG-212 EO/IR camera system is able to automatically detect various types of moving objects like people, vehicles, or aircraft.

Want to get 220+ km of reliable HD video transmission from the gimbal?

Tracking antenna for UAV can help you with that.

It significantly increases the quality and range of stable communication and provides a reliable AES-256 encrypted HD video transmission at distances above 200 km using an automatic mast or 130+ km using a quadropod. Change the configuration on the go depending upon the mission task.Moreover, it's capable of operating within 2 hours using the integrated backup battery to ensure uninterrupted operations in case of a power outage.
