SOMAG AG Jena SOMAG Gyro Stabilization Mount CSM 40

Gyro Stabilization Mount for small format sensors and cameras

The Compact Stabilization Mount 40 is an extra small Gyro Stabilization Mount for single medium format cameras and sensors. Equipped with high-precision built-in sensors, the CSM 40 is designed to detect aircraft movements to automatically compensate for roll, pitch and yaw motions in real-time. The Mount ensures the payload remains in a leveled position for the best data acquisition quality.

The Compact Stabilization Mount 40 is an extra small Gyro Stabilization Mount for single medium format cameras and sensors. With a compact design and a low weight of 5.2 kg, the mounting system is particularly suitable for ultralight aircraft and UAVs. The Mount features an electromechanical gimbal system and stabilizes payloads up to 15 kilogram.
SOMAG offers optionally a Passive Vibration Isolation Ring (PaVIR) to decouple high-frenquency oscillations.

Like all SOMAG Mounts the CSM 40 can read in external IMU data, can be connected to a Flight Management System and can be used with the SOMAG Mount Control App.

SOMAG offers the following optional software features to customize your CSM 40 to your operational requirements:

  • Leveling Offset: adjustment of the Mount virtual horizon
  • End Stop Limits incl. Block axis: adjustment of the Mount movement range and blocking of axes
  • Status/Analysis: logging and analyzing functions in SOMAG Mount Control App
  • IMU Installation Position on Vehicle Frame: adjustment of horizontal IMU position
  • Installation Direction: adjustment of Mount horizontal installation direction
  • AUX port: enables communication to 3rd party interface
