iIPSC-MSG-40: Electro/Optical Target Tracker EOTS with Inertial Gyro Stabilization

Two Axes AZ/EL Gyro Stabilized Tracking Platform for On-shore and Off-shore Applications (Pan/Tilt)

iIPSC-MSG-40 is a stabilised gimbaled platform for up to 40 kg payload (cameras, antennas, laser designator etc.) for surface and naval applications. Direct drive brushless servo motors combined with direct drive high resolution encoders are ensuring the precise and smooth tracking of the iIPSC-MSG-40 in Azimut and Elevation.
All axes are sealed. The selected materials are corrosion resistant and surface treated to withstand harsh land based or shipboard environmental conditions. The basic instrument can be adapted to specific applications by the addition of optional equipment or features.

Being designed to be used to expand existing and build up  new test ranges, the systems of type iIPSC-MSG-xxx can be enabled to operate in clusters together with Cinetheodolites of type EOTS / EOTSF (Electro Optical Tracking System of Contraves) or the Cinetheodolites of Askania or Brashear or pedestals and tracking mounts of Photo-Sonics, Oerlikon or Sagem and furthermore they can replace elder tracking pedestals and Cine-Theodolites. Please ask iMAR sales engineers for offering adaptation engineering work if required.

Installation Example: Weapon Test Evaluation Center at the desert and at the Naval Test Range on naval vessels (full setup with 3 iIPSC units and Central Station Control).


  • Two-axes central payload platform: azimuth and elevation axes for LOS (line-of-sight) control
  • Adaptable to different and multiple sensors due to customized mounting tray (option); balanced payload up to 40 kg
  • Direct torque drives for highest resolution, negligible hysteresis and superior dynamics
  • Made for mobile (off-shore) and static (on-shore) installation: a high performance INS/GPS system of type iNAT-RQH can be applied in the base to stabilize the payload on naval vessels or trucks
  • Available Control Devices: iSCU Stabilisation and Control Unit incl. iOET² Video Target Tracker, iJP Joystick Panel, INS/GPS control and blind pointing feature
  • iOET² Opto Electronic Target Tracking for Auto Tracking, (with multi target capability and fast 50 meas./second)

Series iIPSC-MSG-40 is replaced for new applications by our iIPSC-MSG-60. iIPSC-MSG-60 is designed also to replace the well-known Cine-Theodolites for Missile and Aircraft Tracking on proving grounds worldwide.
