Benefits of

Gyro Stabilization Mounts

SOMAG units are equipped with high-precision built-in sensors that detect vehicle motions, allowing the Gyro Stabilization Mounts to automatically compensate for roll, pitch and yaw in real time. The Mount keeps the payload in a leveled position for best data quality. Pin-sharp nadir and oblique aerial imagery, homogeneous point distribution for lidars and an enhanced situational awareness are just a few of the benefits that result from leveraging a Gyro Mount.

Phase One has been working with SOMAG for 8 years since we started working on integral aero-photography systems. The cooperation with SOMAG has been outstanding from the beginning. Being a system manufacturer, we needed tailored solutions and close integration support which we got from SOMAG. The employees are very professional and they are also eager to continue improving their products based on test results we provide.

We use SOMAG’s entire variety of airborne products: CSM 40, DSM 400 and GSM 4000 as well as the software application and software interface to the mount. All products are backed up by accurate documentation. We really enjoy working with SOMAG and are happy to keep this cooperation going forward.
