Thermal Camera Gimbal – Nimbus
The Nimbus is the smallest ultra light weight UAV/ Drone gyro stabilized EO/IR PTZ camera available with both visible and thermal imaging. Its visible/NIR colour sensor has a 6.5X optical zoom and 2X digital zoom for a total zoom power of 13X, while its 640×480 LWIR uncooled thermal camera provides a HVOF of 8~32 degrees with 2X and 4X digital zoom. The thermal infrared camera requires no maintenance or export control and can detect vehicles almost 2km away in complete darkness.
The Nimbus boasts incredibly small SWaP (Size Weight and Power) with a base weight of only 165 grams for the complete system, while still packing an advanced set of features like IP, SD recording, auto-tracking, GPS and gimbal stablization.
Thermal Camera Gimbal – Designed for UAV/Drone Integration
The Nimbus is designed for easy integration with custom drones and off-the-shelf consumer UAVs such as the DJI model drones. Its SWaP optimized design ensures long flight times and the ability to use just about any drone as its total weight is only 165g. Our accessories make integration quick and easy. There is an interface for PC integration with third party software, protocol call converters adapters that utilize standard radio control formats using the PWM or SBus interface. This allows you to utilize auto pilot features or manual control with joysticks, making it a complete and customizable solution for integration with aerial platforms.
Thermal Infrared Night Vision Camera
Thermal cameras, unlike traditional visible cameras, use heat rather than light to see an object. Humans, animals, and vehicles are very hot in contrast to most backgrounds making trespassers hiding in shadows or bushes easy to spot. Thermal images are also unaffected by bright light and have the ability to see through atmospheric obstructions such as smoke, dust, and light fog. This makes it an ideal technology for a number of applications, including but not limited to surveillance and security, search and rescue, fire, marine and land navigation, and wide area situational assessment.
The Nimbus integrates a 17μm uncooled LWIR thermal sensor with a resolution of 640×480 which operates on 7,000nm–14,000nm wavelengths where terrestrial temperature targets emit most of their infrared energy. The sensor detects minute temperatures differences to create high contrast images, and its no-maintenance uncooled design has no ITAR restrictions, which means a high ROI and long lifetime. We pair the uncooled LWIR core with a precision-engineered 19mm germanium lens that offers a 31.8° horizontal field of view, creating a system that is able to detect vehicles nearly 2km away and humans at 650m.* An ideal solution for aerial surveillance and reconnaissance.
Thermal Camera Gimbal – Visible Optical Camera
The optical camera has been designed and optimized for aerial surveillance. It uses a 640×480 sensor that provides analog video which can be converted to digital with the IP adapter. The camera sensor has excellent spectral sensitivity for both visible and NIR wavelengths with true day/night modes for color images by day and black and white images at night. The visible sensor is paired with a telephoto 6.5X continuous zoom lens with an additional 2X digital zoom for a total of 13X zoom power. This translates to wide angle viewing at 31° and a narrow HFOV of 4.7° at max zoom. This zoom range allows you obtain details on targets detected by the thermal camera or match the thermal camera’s view to have both thermal and visible video of the same scene
Thermal Camera Gimbal – GPS/GIS Positioning
The optional GPS pinpoints the location of the Nimbus camera and video to geographic locations. GIS transmits the position of the camera, as well as its line of sight, and can plot the locations of the targets with high accuracy.
