Coordinate Refinement

The MVP 9960 and 9965 can be loaded with an orthophotograph of the flight area containing precise geographic metadata. Using image processing techniques, the system can identify its location and receive more accurate geo location data.
Three Dimensional Modeling and mapping
The MVP 9960 / 9965 can record metadata on pictures in a format suitable for 3D models and maps.


User application can run on The MVP 9960 and 9965 hardware by using docker containers. Running user application on The MVP 9960 and 9965 instead of adding a dedicated platform processor reduces weight, power consumption, and results in a smaller form factor.


While GPS is available, The M2D and MVP/9965 will be used in regular manner. When GPS becomes unavailable, the pair can be used to obtain camera/platform location. The MVP/9965 unit reports the location (LAT/LON) of the gimbal/platform by analyzing the video stream against a stored orthophotograph without using GPS data.

Image Enhancement

When Image enhancement is ON, The MVP/9965 enhances the colors of a 720p video stream resulting in a more enhanced image for obtaining minute subtle details.

Drone thermal camera
Background: Military unmanned vehicles UAV’s of today and tomorrow rely heavily on electro-optical EO Infrared IR sensor payloads to perform their missions.
These are the sensors that detect light in many different spectra, and enable unmanned vehicles to see. Electro-optical Infrared EOIR payloads are the sensors
that enable unmanned vehicles (UAV/UAS/DRONE) to see and avoid obstacles, detect movement, navigate accurately, find the enemy, and warn of the potential
for buried improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Designers of electro-optical Infrared Thermal EOIR – T sensor payloads for unmanned vehicles are under intense
pressure to evolve their technologies to keep pace with fast-moving trends in the unmanned vehicles industry. Perhaps in no other market are needs for ever-smaller,
lighter, and less expensive payloads as urgent as they are in the unmanned vehicles business. Small size, weight, and power consumption-known by its ubiquitous
acronym SWaP-is a paramount concern.

Thermal camera for drone
Unmanned systems, UAV’s Uas, Suas, Drones, Unmanned Robots, especially the airborne variety, are proliferating at an explosive rate, and demand is extending
beyond the military to more cost-sensitive industries such as law enforcement, agriculture, commercial remote sensing, traffic monitoring, and sporting events.
Put simply, a growing number of people need unmanned vehicles that are small, inexpensive, and reliable, and they need electro-optical sensor payloads to match.
Not only is there demand for ever-smaller, lighter, and less expensive electro-optical Infrared IR (thermal FLIR imaging, Thermal imaging IR Infrared Camera)
Gimbal Turret payloads, but demand for capability also is increasing.
As electro-optical and electronic component technology becomes smaller, lighter, and more affordable, payload designers sometimes have the option of choosing
between smaller size and weight, or more capability. Sometimes they strive to do both, and this presents some interesting possibilities in design tradeoffs.
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are at the forefront of unmanned vehicle research, development, and procurement. Although no less important than
unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) and unmanned marine vehicles, it is the UAV that is setting the agenda for unmanned electro-optical sensor payloads.

Drone thermal camera
At the top of that UAV/UAS/Drone/Robot agenda is a broad trend toward large and growing numbers of relatively small UAVs that can provide local-area
and short-duration surveillance-the kinds of UAVs that can provide squad leaders a view over the next hill.
In the not-too-distant past there was a big push on developing sensor technology, and size and weight didn’t matter because DOD had large aircraft like
Global Hawk and Predator, as well as manned aircraft, hyperspectral imaging sensors are small and rugged enough to fit on relatively small UAVs.
Hyperspectral imaging is a sophisticated discipline that samples a wide variety of bandwidths in the light spectrum to provide a rich data set and detect
objects of interest not visible to single-bandwidth imaging sensors.
The key element to to reduce size and weight, that is Key!
Engineers started with a very small gimbal, and added high-definition visible-light video along with hyper spectral sensor payload.

Eo/Ir drone gimbal
The imperative for small size and light weight has forced mfg’s to a common material set able to withstand harsh environmental
conditions such as the stress placed on UAV takeoffs and landings. “The tarmac in the Middle East can be 120 degrees, and the payload must go to
thousands of feet a few minutes later where it is much colder,”
As electro-optical Infrared (Thermal imaging FLIR camera) drone thermal flir gimbal (EOIR FLIR) payloads for unmanned vehicles must continue to shrink in size,
the engineering challenges become heavier and force engineers to make some custom designs where years ago they would have considered only off-the-shelf solutions.
Many thermal cameras and shortwave infrared (SWIR) cameras available off the shelf are not made to withstand the physical rigors of small UAV, As a result,
Companies have been forced to evaluate the size of electro-mechanical elements of these sensors, and invest in new detector technology for electro-mechanical components
Custom design like this does not come cheaply, but electro-optical payload designers are seeking cost savings elsewhere.

To advance with the advent of smaller more efficient and sensitive detectors and lasers, The Gyro Stabilization will Get much better and smaller as well
