Offroad Stabilization Mount 5000

OSM 5000 - Land

The Offroad Stabilization Mount 5000 – Land is SOMAG’s most powerful gimbal system for precise sensor stabilization in on-the-move environments.


  • Highest payload stabilization

    of land Gyro Stabilization Mount series
  • Two stabilization range configuration available

    for best stabilization results tailored to individual application
  • External data input possible

    for IMU data or NMEA frames

Powerful and precise vehicle mounted camera stabilization

Whether on the road, off-road or on rails – everything that moves on land generates motions. A recording of videos and capturing of images is disturbed by these movements. Our OSM 5000-Land is designed to provide the best possible mobile data recording and to compensate for these roll and pitch movements caused by the vehicle. First-class built-in sensors detect the movements, precise internal algorithms calculate the compensation and an extremely powerful hydraulic gimbal system counterbalances them. From video cameras to LiDAR systems to infrared-, hyperspectral or pan/tilt/zoom cameras – all payloads benefit from stabilization, as significantly improved data acquisition results from leveraging a gyro stabilization. The OSM 5000 is the strongest stabilization platform ever developed by SOMAG. Thanks to the hydraulic system and a dynamic peak torque of 550 Nm, heavy (multi-) sensor systems of up to 300 kg (660 lbs) can be aligned absolutely precisely to the horizon or to the desired direction.

Dual-axis gyro stabilizer for large vehicles

The dual-axis gyro stabilization ensures enhanced observation and surveillance capabilities on mobile defense solutions, wheeled armored fighting vehicles (AFV), cross country trucks, transport vehicles and other mobile platforms and ground vehicles. The weatherproof design (IP class 67) protects the offroad gimbal from environmental influences such as dust, salt- and splash water.

The OSM 5000 offers an Ethernet communication interface that allows integration into existing networks as well as control and monitoring of multiple Gyro Mounts within a network.

Preliminary data, subject to change

1 Vehicle motion ≤± 12° / 12°/s / 10°/s2 – small periodical lateral accelerations (≤ 0.5 g) acceptable, constant lateral accelerations for more than 1 minute resulting from vehicle’s turning maneuvers are compensated by internal or external GPS input. No GPS input could reduce the performance of the Mount during turning maneuvers.
2 Possible payload weight depends on lateral acceleration and CoG of payload / shown data is based on 0.5 g lateral acceleration and a CoG payload offset to the Mount surface of: 370 mm (14.6 in) | 450 mm (17.7 in) | 550 mm (21.7 in)
3 Maximum duration 90 s at 55 °C surrounding temperature / longer if temperature inside the unit is < 55 °C
4 Horizontal payload CoG offsets are not considered; without wind force and other possible external forces


Whether on the road or off-road – mobile data collection can be challenging when disturbed by vehicle motions. SOMAG develops and manufactures Gyro Stabilization Mounts for precise stabilization of imaging sensors and other payloads in mobile land applications. Would you like to see in which cases SOMAG Land Mounts are beneficial? We have compiled a number of examples for you that show the variety of application scenarios for our devices.
