The Gyro Stabilization Mount GSM 4000® is the flagship of SOMAG AG Jena airborne gyro mount line. It is the successor of the GSM 3000 and contains a lot of new features.
Because Gyro Stabilization makes a difference
The three axes gimbal dynamically stabilizes sensors like cameras, LiDAR’s and other surveying equipment. Due to its versatility, the GSM 4000 can stabilize a wide range of state-of-the-art surveying and surveillance sensors and is not limited to a specific product. This makes our Gyro Mount a perfect add-on for your applications. The gyro stabilization ensures perfectly aligned and pin-sharp images. The GSM 4000 hydraulic gimbal system contains four cylinders and two servo pumps to compensate for drift, roll and pitch movement in real-time for the best possible data acquisition quality.
SOMAG AG Jenas powerful gimbal system
The GSM 4000 was developed for large format sensors and stabilizes a payload up to 120 kg. With 410 mm usable diameter the GSM 4000 is our best solution where effectivity, weight and performance are combined. SOMAG AG Jena reduced the weight of the Mount to 29 kg.
Successor of GSM 3000
The Gyro Stabilization Mount 4000 is 100% downward compatible to current GSM 3000 installations. It means that the mechanical and electronic interfaces are identical. All sensors, cameras, scanners, LiDAR's and FMS can still be used with the GSM 4000. On the top of the Mount is the new and simplified control panel, which guarantees user-friendly handling of the Mount. The USB-port allows you to connect the platform with SOMAG Mount Control App for a manual control of the Mount, firmware updates and fault analysis.
