FLIR offers low-cost inertial stabilization module (ISM) as an option on several pan-tilt models including: PTU-D48E, PTU-D100E, and PTU-D300E. The ISM is fully integrated with the E-Series pan-tilt units requiring no external wiring or processing boxes. It provides a turn-key integrated solution for low-cost inertial line of sight (LOS) stabilization of any payload for mobile platforms including ground, air, and sea. For camera applications, inertial stabilization improves images while on the move. The ISM allows real-time computer control during stabilization, enabling closed loop systems for tracking, slew-to-queue, and more.

  • Breakthrough Cost & Performance

    Until now, stabilized pointing platforms typically have been used in very specialized applications due to their high cost and lack of flexibility to accommodate different payloads. The ISM provides impressive performance at breakthrough cost points. The stabilization provided by the ISM allows the use of higher zoom cameras and is critical for operation of automated video tracking and detection systems aboard moving platforms.

  • Open Architecture

    ISM's open architecture and powerful feature set allows OEMs and integrators to quickly implement complex applications and products that include stabilized pointing of payloads. The ISM is tightly integrated and tested with FLIR pan-tilt units to minimize development risk and time. The ISM offers a rich command set to support integration with operator consoles, radar inputs, video tracking systems, and more.
