Offshore Stabilization Mount - OSM 4000

The OSM 4000 is SOMAG AG Jenas latest innovation and a powerful Gyro Stabilization Mount for land and marine applications.

Because Gyro Stabilization makes a difference

The OSM stabilizes in real-time pitch and roll movements of ground and rail vehicles caused by uneven terrain. It also compensates the angular motions of boats, ships, Unmanned Surface Vessels (USVs/ASVs) and buoys caused by waves, providing a stabilized and sharp field of view.

The stabilization thus ensures perfectly aligned images and high quality data capturing. With a mounting space of Ø600 mm the gyro stabilized platform offers sufficient space for antennas and a wide range of large sensors systems.

The OSM 4000 combines power with versatility

The application possibilities are manifold.

Possible Land Applications:

  • Mobile mapping and scanning
  • Chemical detection
  • Border protection
  • Mining vehicles

Possible Marine Applications:

  • Harbour safety
  • Coastal surveillance
  • Gas and oil rigs security
  • Anti-collision systems on USVs and ships
  • Offshore survey

A combination of high-power engines and a hydraulic gimbal system enables the Mount to lift an unprecedented payload of up to 160 kilos. The weatherproof design makes the device extremely ruggedized. The OSM is dust-and salt water resistant.

Like all SOMAG Gyro Mounts the OSM 4000 is usable with the SOMAG Mount Control App and can read in external IMU data.

Are you looking for a more compact device? Then the RSM 400 may be the right one for you.
