HummingBird is a family of single / dual sensor sensor gyro stabilized light weight gimbals for light weight UAV platforms. It provides dual output EO & IR images enhancing situational awareness in day time and also in darkness, smoke, haze, rain, fog and other hazardous situations. It is a multi-band imaging system that can be mounted to the base of a UAV.
It provides extended dynamic range and depth of field to enhance the clarity and precision of the image while highlighting details that would typically not be visible to the naked eye. With multi-sensor fusion inbuilt it combines complementary information from each sensor into a single video stream which not only reduces bandwidth requirement to transmit but also provides superior image which can be displayed to the operator. It maximizes scene detail and contrast producing superior image quality with maximized information content. HummingBird for UAV’s is available in three configurations – only with 30X optical zoom EO camera, Medium Range uncooled TI and a dual sensor system.
The Gimbal is equipped with an advanced video tracker with ability to allow a UAV to follow a target.
