9-inch Series

gyrocam 9-inch Series

The Gyrocam 9 Series is available in mid-wave cooled (9M) or long-wave uncooled (9L) thermal imaging configurations. Systems are half the weight and one third the volume of 15-inch units with two-axis gyro-stabilization and CMOS color imaging.

Optional capabilities include high-definition color, laser pointing, geo-location and an eye-safe laser rangefinder capable of ranging up to 20 km from the observer. Rapid interfacing is readily available with other sensor systems, including remote weapons, moving maps and DVR.

The 9 Series accesses the secure data link capabilities of our GyroLink and Gyrostream family of products. Mission critical information and full motion video is received and/or distributed for increased situational awareness.

With proven operational durability in adverse weather conditions, the 9 Series performs in demanding environments. Designed for mounted or dismounted operations, a quick-swap universal mounting system enables integration on fixed site, ground, maritime and airborne platforms.
