Ruggedized Stabilization Mount - RSM 400

In addition to the devices for the airborne sector, SOMAG AG Jena develops and manufactures a range of Gyro Stabilization Mounts specifically for marine and land applications to perfectly stabilize sensors in extreme harsh environments.

Because Gyro Stabilization makes a difference

The two axes gimbals compensate roll and pitch motions of boats, ships Unmanned/ Autonomous Surface Vessels and buoys caused by the waves.

The device also stabilizes roll and pitch motions of any kind of terrestrial vehicle caused by uneven terrain. The real-time stabilization ensures high quality data capturing and pin-sharp images and provides a stabilized field of view of the panoramic environment.

Ruggedized gyro-stabilized platform for use on terrestrial and marine vehicles

The RSM 400 is the smallest Gyro Mount of the marine and land series. The innovative round shape of this sensor mounting system is particularly suitable for surveillance and surveying sensors. Photogrammetric devices can be used with the gyro-stabilized platform as well as surveillance cameras or pan and tilt units.

We designed and manufactured a compact Gyro Stabilization Mount which is especially made for the use in a harsh environment. Therefore the RSM 400 is dust-, salt- and splash-water resistant.  High quality materials and a robust build guarantee an effective use of this mounting system.

The RSM 400 lifts a payload up to 15 kg. A higher payload up to 35.0 kg is now also optionally available by the use of stronger engines and by installing additional heating elements, an operation down to - 35°C can be realized.

This Gyro Mount has the same electronical interface as all other SOMAG stabilization devices. It can lead in external IMU data and can be control via SOMAG Mount Control App.


The application possibilities are manifold.

Possible Land Applications:

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

Possible Marine Applications:

  • Harbour safety
