UAV Gimbal Motion Control

Advanced micro-gimbals with high performance inertial stabilization technology are found on both land-based and aerial platforms such as military UAVs like the Predator. The full motion EO imager system employed in many of these unmanned platforms attains continuous pan, +40°/-220° tilt and 200°/sec slew rates by utilizing custom-designed Allied Motion Megaflux brushless torque motors.
