The SteadyTrack is an aerial sensor stabilization mount system. Movement of the aircraft is corrected using an IMU so that the attached sensor is always properly aligned. Modular design allows each mount to include FMS, IMU, and LiDAR control system options.
Available in two main variants, STX-250, and STX-550, Steady-Track mounts can be the ideal platform for both small and larger sensor packages. The STX-250 mount is a comprehensive stabilization solution for small and medium format sensors, such as the Nikon D800e, Leica S2, PhaseOne iXA 180, or Leica RCD30. The STX-550 is capable of handling larger mapping systems and multiple sensors. SteadyTrack mounts offer complete 3 axis stabilization along roll, pitch and heading, all compen-sated simultaneously. Images are typically within 0.2° of vertical and track of the aircraft. SteadyTrack mounts can be calibrated within seconds and can be oriented in any of four directions. This means that it can be installed to best fit the shape and layout of any aircraft. As a result, relocating the mount to other aircraft is easy.
