The company conducted a series of flight, laboratory, and environmental demonstrations to showcase the capabilities of the CM62 Micro Gimbal, including demonstrations of electro-optical (EO) ultra-zoom, long-wave infrared (LWIR) and a range of onboard smart features.
CM62 Micro Gimbal is a miniature multi-sensor imaging system that has been developed to provide improved intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR), and target acquisition capabilities during small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) operations.
The system combines HD long-range EO imagery and a custom LWIR core in a 260g, compact system.
With improved stabilisation, the micro gimbal facilitates accurate day and night target detection and identification, in a small, lightweight and low-power system to enhance the operator’s situational awareness in the field.
Chief Technology Officer Philipp Senn said AVT Australia had set the industry standard for miniature gyro-stabilised imaging systems for ISR and target acquisition operations.
“The capabilities of the CM62 Micro Gimbal have never before been achieved in a system of its size, weight and power,” he said.
“We are proud to develop world-leading capabilities here in Australia.”
AVT Australia will showcase the CM62 Micro Gimbal at this year’s Land Forces trade show in Brisbane from 1 to 3 June.
