Stabilized pan/tilt system

The E-Series Inertial Stabilization Module (ISM) pan/tilt model from FLIR Motion Control Systems is an open-architecture inertial stabilization option on pan/tilts that improves performance using a three-axis gyro and special firmware to control the pan/tilt’s pointing angles and to compensate for vehicle motion and maintain steady line of sight. The open architecture of the ISM allows for integration with applications such as video tracking, radar slew to cue, and joystick control via built-in serial and ethernet interfaces. A web interface provides configuration and tailoring to OEM applications. ISM stabilized pan/tilt systems are suitable for mobile sensing or communications applications with single and multipart payloads including maritime camera systems, communications on the move, airborne antenna or camera systems, and ground-vehicle-mounted camera systems for protection and surveillance.

Advanced ultrahigh-strength cast ductile iron materials such as SiboDur provide a cost-competitive lightweight solution that can challenge aluminum for commercial-truck chassis, powertrain, and drivetrain applications.
In an attempt to achieve a balance between Reynolds number, model scale, and tunnel blockage issues, a 1:3 scale heavy-vehicle testing program has been initiated at the Monash University 1.4-MW wind tunnel.
Researchers at Ashok Leyland make a case for choosing stainless steel over galvanized steel and aluminum for the complete bus structure. Although the initial material cost is higher for stainless steel, it scores better in other areas including mechanical and thermal properties and optimized structure weight. On the whole, the lower life cycle cost (LCC) offsets the initial material cost and yields rich dividends to the end customer, they claim.
