Aerial imagery

Last week we introduced a new, 3-axis gyro-stabilised gimbal at AUVSI Xponential.

The CM100 is now compatible with a 35mm infrared lens to give improved zooming capabilities during ISR missions. The large focal length lets you gather more information on an object or event to make your mission more efficient. With an integrated 35mm IR lens, the CM100 offers an affordable, effective and low SWaP-C system for integration into small to medium sized UAVs. 

Last week we put on our aviators for Avalon and the Australian International Airshow, where we saw everything from a F16 FALCON to a C-17A GLOBEMASTER III. Did you miss out on this year's airshow? Not to worry, we’ve listed our top photos from the week. Which aircraft is your favourite?

A single sensor camera payload allows one sensor to be integrated into the system, which is pre-defined by the manufacturer. This is usually an electro-optical (EO) sensor, which can provide high definition daylight imagery and video. A single sensor camera payload is best suited to applications that require simple daylight imagery.

There is a growing demand for smaller, lighter and more affordable camera payloads for UAVs, MAVs and unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs).

Acceptance test

Your gimbal has just arrived and you are eager to get it plugged onto your UAV so you can experience its revered performance for yourself.

Using the CM202 for military missions

The CM202 is a technology-driven camera payload ideal for a range of military applications. This infographic shows the capabilities of the CM202. How will you use it for your mission?

Using a UAV for oil and gas inspections

To ensure that an oil or gas plant complies with safety and environmental regulations, general asset inspections need to be carried out. Traditional inspection methods are expensive, time-consuming and involve a high risk of injury, therefore UAVs have become the preferred solution. Here’s how you can benefit from using a UAV for your operation.

When a disaster occurs, a camera payload acts as the eyes of the mission.

The difference between digital and optical zoom

10x optical, 30x optical or 121x total zoom… what is best?

First let's clarify which is which.
