Gyro Stabilization Mounts Make A Difference - Airborne Applications

Pitch, roll and yaw angles present a constant challenge for aerial photography, geospatial data acquisition and surveillance. The solution - Gyro Stablization Mounts, which drastically reduce the movements of airborne sensor systems. SOMAG AG Jena develops and manufactures Gyro Mounts since 2004 for data acquisition, surveillance and other applications. Our leading edge technology allows a high resolution image quality and more flying time at lower costs.

Take control of the vibrations and movements of the aircraft and benefit from high quality aerial imagery. All our devices can be connected with the most popular Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) and Flight Management Systems (FMS) to complete your flight missions even more efficiently.

Airborne Mounts:

Movements Stabilized by SOMAG Airborne Mounts

Without Stabilization

  • Potential source of error: lack of adjacent overlap could missing data
  • Large overlaps to avoid missing data
  • Costs time and money > inefficient workflow
  • Acquisition of blurred images causes postprocessing issues
  • Ranging errors for LiDAR's because of aircraft pitch movement

With Stabilization

  • Turbulences are stabilized/ Risk of data gaps is highly reduced
  • Overlaps can be reduced to 10 % or even less
  • Tremendous saving of time and money > more efficient workflow
  • Smearing of images is highly reduced
  • Pitch compensation increases ranging accuracy of LiDAR's

Gyro Stabilization Mounts Make A Difference - Marine and Land Applications

SOMAG AG Jena offers a range of Gyro Mounts specifically for marine and terrestrial applications to perfectly stabilize sensors in extremely harsh environments. They have been designed to be dust-, salt- and splash-water resistant. The Mounts compensate roll and pitch motions caused by the swell or uneven terrain, providing a stabilized field of view (FOV) of the panoramic environment.

Land and Marine Mounts:

Movements stabilized by SOMAG marine and land gyro mounts

Without Stabilization

  • Images are not aligned to each other because of vessel movements
  • an unstable field of view could cause data gaps or decreased data quality
  • acquisition of blurred images causes more post-processing issues
  • ranging errors for LiDARs because of vessel pitch movement


Unstabilized Field of View

With Stabilization

  • Perfectly aligned images
  • High quality data capturing
  • Stabilized video recording
  • Less data gaps
  • Smearing of images is highly reduced
  • Pitch compensation increases ranging accuracy of LiDARs
