The most advanced stabilized micro gimbal systems on the market


Get everything you need into the gimbal. Choose freely your cameras and sensors and we do the customized integration in shortest delivery times.

Video Tracker

The video tracker will automatically hold the cameras locked on the chosen target in the image. Hence a moving object on the ground will remain locked onto the centre of the video at all times.

All our products are fully designed and manufactured in Europe and have maximum exportability worldwide, hence non-ITAR.

Geo Features

The Geo-Location feature will output the GPS position of the viewed object centred in the video image. The additional Geo-Tracking option is capable of locking the line-of-sight of the gimbal onto a GPS geographical position on the ground.

The OTUS gimbals have best available price vs. performance ratio and shortest delivery times worldwide. The stabilization performance in our micro gimbals are world leading.

Digital Stabilization

Digital stabilization with frame correction, removes the high-frequency jitter often found in narrow field-of-view images. This significantly reduces the operator workload and allows it to concentrate on the mission objective.

The OTUS-L205 gyro stabilised micro gimbal provides outstanding performance in one of the smallest form factors available.

The two axis gimbal reach a new level of stabilisation performance thanks to purpose-built high-bandwidth torque motors implementing active vibration attenuation. All electronics required for the advanced digital control fits within the unit shell. The user only have to connect an external power supply, a video monitor and a joystick, to have the system up and running.

A three dimensional micro-mechanical IMU and a laser range finder mounted directly on the optical bench, allows for advanced features like geo-location and geo-positioning, provided an external heading source is connected to the OTUS-L205.

The powerful digital servo controller of the OTUS-L205 is even capable of providing enough computational power to drive optional features like vehicle control and navigation.
