The SPS-500 multi-axis gimbal system weighs 35 pounds and
supports sensor payloads up to 60 pounds. The use of direct drive
brushless motors and resolvers eliminates backlash, reduces jitter,
achieves high reliability and meets MIL-STD-810, MIL-STD-167,
MIL-S-901 & RTCA/DO-160 environments. The direct drive system
also allows the multi-axis gimbal system to achieve high rates of
acceleration for near zenith targets for tracking applications.
Standard operating power options include: 115/240 VAC, 50/60 Hz;
208 VAC, 50/60 Hz; 24/28 VDC.
Optional features include MIL grade fiber optic gyros (FOG) and
multi-conductor sliprings, fiber optic rotary joints (FORJ),
risers, tripods, and automatic video trackers (AVT).
