Maximize the performance of your sensors with our gyro stabilization

The RSM 50 is the smallest and most cost-effective gyro-stabilized platform of SOMAG’s land gimbals. Mobile mapping and scanning or video and image acquisition – for all these applications, the RSM 50 is the perfect addition to your compact sensor system. With minimal dimensions and a light weight of only 11.5 kg (24.3 lbs), the RSM 50 is ideal for applications where space is at a premium. Located on top of cars, small UGVs and mining vehicles, the Gyro Stabilization Mount compensates for roll and pitch movements that occur while driving. The recordings will be unaffected by vehicle motions because the sensor remains stabilized the entire time.

Precisely adaptable to your needs

The electromechanical gimbal system ensures stabilized imagery for sensors up to 40 kg. High-quality materials and a solid mechanical construction guarantee effective use of this dust, salt and splash water resistant mounting system designed for mobile data capturing. The offroad gimbal comes with an energy-saving mode. This stand-by mode is advantageous for long-term applications. Additional features include extended diagnosis possibilities and a failsafe braking system to securely lock the payload during power outage. The new Ethernet communication interface allows for an integration into existing networks as well as a control and monitoring of multiple mounts within a network.

Preliminary data, subject to change

1 Vehicle angular motion ≤± 18° / 25°/s / 40°/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 1.0 g lateral acceleration and a CoG payload offset to the Mount surface of: 125 mm (4.9 in) | 200 mm (7.9 in) | 400 mm (15.7 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.
