Pan Tilt Units, Pedestals & Payload Turrets

Caracal – Compact Pan Tilt Units

L – Shape pedestal for antenna & camera payloads

Caracal Compact Pan Tilt UnitsThe Caracal is a compact and lightweight pan tilt unit designed to be easily carried by a single person. The system can support payloads weighing up to 40kg, providing precise, smooth motion at any speed. The integrated slipring allows for continuous 360-degree rotation on the yaw axis, and stabilization sensors ensure high accuracy tracking and positioning. A unique self-locking function guarantees that system position is saved even in the event of a power failure.

The Caracal is available in three performance variants – Standard, High-Performance and Superior. The Superior version has been specially adapted for use on aerial platforms such as UAVs and drones, and Standard and High-Performance are ideal for maritime platforms such as unmanned patrol boats and USVs.

Counter-UAS Detection & Tracking

Anti-Threat Intelligent Detector (ATID)

Counter-UAS detection and tracking system

Anti-Drone Detection and TrackingThe Anti-Threat Intelligent Detector (ATID) is a real-time detection and tracking system designed to protect against rogue UAVs, drones and other threats.

Based around our Caracal turret system, the ATID uses day and thermal cameras to provide real-time optical threat detection and tracking. The system can be fitted with a GPS to enhance directional pinpointing of targets, as well as optional jamming technology and weapons payloads.

It is ideal for providing counter-drone capabilities at airports, prisons, military installations and critical infrastructure.
