UAVOS has announced that it has developed a gyro-stabilized 3-axis gimbal for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) with integrated RGB Full HD video camera and 30x optical zoom and Ethernet output. The gimbal has an extended operational temperature range and is designed to withstand harsh environments, featuring a compact size, low weight of 2.64lb (1,2kg), and a strong mechanical aluminium-cased structure. In addition, the gimbal integrates with UAVOS’ autopilot, allowing for the obtaining of coordinates of ground objects.
Two axes of 360-degree stabilization offer the possibility to obtain images from any point of view. The third axis and precision stabilization provide high image quality at maximum 30x optical zoom. The gimbal is equipped with high-precision 17-bit encoders that provide excellent image stabilization and precision. The high degree of stabilization allows for the gimbal to be successfully operated on UAVOS unmanned helicopters in high-vibration conditions.
Aliaksei Stratsilatau, Chairman of the Board and lead developer, said: “Our gimbal has already shown good results when operating in southern regions with hot and tropical climates, when installed on a fixed-wing UAV aircraft, and when parachuting to hard-rock areas. All landings were undertaken without damage. UAVOS will be an exhibitor at Xponetial 2019 in Chicago, with a major presence covering its entire range of commercial unmanned aircraft, defence, and helicopter UAV products and services, moreover, a number of products will be shown for the first time.”
