Trillium Engineering is a leading developer of camera gimbal payloads for tactical drones and UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles). UST is delighted to welcome Trillium on board as a supplier partner, and we will be highlighting their unique solutions and capabilities across our channels over the next 12 months.

We’ve just launched Trillium’s UST supplier profile, which has been written and built by our team in collaboration with the company. The Platinum profile showcases their cutting-edge imaging technologies, which have been incorporated into a variety of leading unmanned aircraft platforms, including the Textron Systems Aerosonde in service with the U.S. Army, the Quantum-Systems Vector and the Martin UAV V-BAT.

Read on to find out about Trillium’s rugged UAV gimbals:

HD25The HD25 is a lightweight and compact drone camera gimbal delivering 720p HD digital H.264-compliant video output with a 3x optical zoom visible camera and optional fixed focal length uncooled LWIR camera. The onboard GPS-aided INS is co-located with the cameras and allows the gimbal to provide real-time geopointing and geolocation for high-accuracy target tracking.

The HD40 is a state-of-the-art drone gimbal available as a 30x optical zoom EO-only configuration, or an EO/IR system with 10x optical zoom visible camera and a fixed focal length uncooled LWIR camera. The gimbal includes a variety of advanced software features such as scene and target tracking, and also integrates an 850 nm night vision-compatible laser pointer.

EO IR UAV gimbalThe HD45 is a robust and lightweight UAV EO/IR gimbal featuring both visible and LWIR cameras with optical zoom capabilities, as well as an 850 nm night vision-compatible laser pointer. The onboard IMU can be upgraded to deliver 1-degree accuracy for best-in-class geolocation and geopointing. The gimbal is available with a 5x optical zoom uncooled LWIR camera and either 5x or 10x optical zoom visible camera.

The HD55 is a state-of-the-art UAV gimbal providing EO/IR or dual EO camera functionality and an 850nm laser pointer for precise and discreet pointing. The advanced built-in GPS-aided INS delivers accuracy of down to 0.5 degrees, enabling the best possible real-time geopointing and geolocation capabilities. Video output is compliant with both H.264 and H.265 compression.

UAV gimbal payloadThe HD80 is a powerful UAV gimbal with best-in-class stability and a variety of options for day or night operations. Featuring cutting-edge embedded video processing capabilities such as scene and target tracking, it enables high-accuracy real-time location of both static and dynamic targets. The gimbal is available as a dual EO camera system, or in several EO/IR configurations with MWIR or LWIR thermal imaging options.

The HD95 is a SWaP (size, weight, and power)-optimized EO/IR gimbal that was developed to fulfil the US Army’s Future Vertical Lift UAS requirements. Designed to provide the most advanced aerial reconnaissance and imaging, the gimbal features a global shutter EO camera and MWIR and SWIR thermal cameras, as well as a laser pointer, laser rangefinder, and STANAG 3733-compliant laser target designator.
