SOUTH PASADENA, Calif., April 9, 2015 — Tactical Airborne Gimbal System (TAGS) from IJK ControlsThe Tactical Airborne Gimbal System (TAGS) from IJK Controls LLC features an HD continuous-zoom midwave-infrared (MWIR) imaging system with a visible-wavelength camera and laser, making it suitable for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions that require demanding stabilization and pointing characteristics.

Designed for use on fixed-wing and rotary-wing platforms, the system is based on a four-axis carbon fiber gimbal design with fiber-optic gyroscope stabilization and extended operation capabilities for high altitudes, extreme temperatures and humidity.

The TAGS is 17.5 in. across and weighs about 100 pounds with the sensor payload. Stabilization performance is a few microradians, and feedback is provided on a low-latency binary interface. It’s designed to meet the demanding requirements for airborne equipment, including DO-160. A controller offers advanced features, such as geo-pointing and metadata output, allowing integration with mission systems.

Applications include special operations, tactical surveillance and law enforcement.
