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.
