SOMAG AG Jena introduces OSM 4000 –
a ruggedized Gyro Stabilization Mount for maritime applications
With a combination of high-power engines and a hydraulic gimbal system, the Gyro Mount stabilizes payloads up to 160 kg. The two-axis gimbal offers a usable mounting space of Ø600 mm providing sufficient space for large sensor systems.
The OSM 4000 actively balances vessel movements which drastically reduces motions of the sensor ensuring perfectly aligned images, a stabilized field of view for video recordings and an increased ranging accuracy for LiDARs.
The OSM 4000 compensates roll up to ≤±13.0° and pitch up to ≤±10.0° with a residual deviation from perpendicular of only ≤0.2° rms without IMU support at sea state 4. Like all SOMAG devices, the OSM 4000 works automatically and independently due to internal gyros but can also process external IMU data, which improves the residual deviation performance for long term applications. With high-quality materials, a rugged housing and a weatherproof design that makes the device salt- and splash-water resistant, the OSM 4000 is made to last. Gyro Stabilization Mount applications range from coastal surveillance and harbor safety to offshore surveys.
