The MLG is equipped with a two-axis mirror drive for line-of-sight stabilization from Jenoptik. This drive aligns and stabilizes optical sensor light paths from direct view or day  sight cameras, thermal imagers and laser rangefinders.

The mirror drive can be used at temperatures ranging from -35°C to +63°C. What's more, we maintain and repair all products — as required or based on customer-specific maintenance schedules. We also offer training for your employees at any time.

Airborne and ground based mobile radar and sensor systems: Line-of-sight stabilization

Line-of-sight stabilization for radar and sensor system of mobile platforms

On civilian and military aircraft and ground vehicles, the movements of the carrier are disconnected from the recording systems for reconnaissance and target acquisition. For this reason, our platforms for radar and optical sensors offer two- or even three-axis stabilization. Used in conjunction with day sight and night vision cameras, thermal imagers or laser rangefinders, they form a complete observation system.

Jenoptik offers you standard products or complete systems tailored to the sensors used. These products can also be easily integrated into your vehicles.
