AVT Australia Successfully Demonstrates Micro Gimbal to Defence Stakeholders


AVT Australia has successfully demonstrated its innovative CM62 Micro Gimbal to key personnel in the Defence Science & Technology Group (DST), Defence Innovation Hub (DIH), and the Australian Defence Force (ADF).

AVT Australia conducted a series of flight, laboratory, and environmental demonstrations to showcase the capabilities of the CM62 Micro Gimbal. This included demonstrations of Electro-Optical (EO) ultra-zoom, long-wave infrared (LWIR) imagery and a range of onboard smart features.

The 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 CM62 is a miniature multi-sensor, 260g Micro Gimbal for ISR 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.

“AVT Australia has set the industry standard for miniature gyro-stabilised imaging systems for ISR and target acquisition operations” said Chief Technology Officer, Philipp Senn. “The capabilities of the CM62 Micro Gimbal have never before been achieved in a system of its size, weight and power. We are proud to develop world-leading capabilities here in Australia.”
