Lightweight EO/IR UAV Micro-Gimbal Launched

By Mike Ball / 16 Aug 2021

AVT CM62 Micro GimbalCACI International has launched the AVT CM62 Micro Gimbal, a multi-sensor imaging system that combines high definition electro-optical (EO) imagery and a custom long-wave infrared (LWIR) core in a compact package that weighs just 260g. The CM62 provides small unmanned aerial system (sUAS) operations with a high-performance intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) solution in a low-SWaP (size, weight and power) gimbal.

CACI is a supplier of lightweight, gyro-stabilized, and multi-sensor imaging systems for ISR and target acquisition operations. Smaller, lighter, lower-power systems reduce resource requirements on equipment and provide more efficient capability, and integrating such systems onto existing platforms ensures battlefield equipment and tools are ready for the mission.

CACI acquired Ascent Vision Technologies (AVT) in 2020. AVT has been recognized for advanced engineering and for supplying advanced imaging solutions and software development for global national security missions.

John Mengucci, President and CEO at CACI, commented: “The CM62 represents a new generation of surveillance systems. Engineered for the modern battlefield, the CM62 is designed to provide superior capability against the evolving threats that our Sailors, Marines and warfighters are facing against our technologically savvy adversaries. This technology will have a significant impact on survivability and resiliency during sUAS operations and beyond.”
