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 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.”
