Arrow 600 EO/IR Gimbal

Arrow - JTZ shot

The Arrow 600 precision stabilized 6-inch gimbal is best-in-class performance providing pointing precision, image quality, and video processing features only found in much larger and more costly gimbals. A 4-axis stabilization system provides the ultimate in precision pointing for precision geo-pointing, target location accuracy, and image quality. Various standard configurations support Visible, MWIR, SWIR, and LWIR imagers along with multiple available laser payloads including laser rangefinder, laser illuminator, laser designator, and laser pointer. Custom payload configurations are also available upon request. An on-board high definition video processor provides multiple target tracking, digital video stabilization, and H.264 video encoding. The Arrow 600 is designed for Low-SWaP applications with 3-4 kg weight (depended on payload configuration) and 22W average power draw. Full MIL-STD compliance and on-gimbal anti-icing enables unconstrained operations in all weather conditions, high altitude, and high speed (> 400 knots).
