SOUTH PASADENA, Calif., 18 May 2015. IJK Controls LLC in South Pasadena, Calif., is introducing the Tactical Airborne Gimbal System (TAGS) electro-optical sensor gimbal for special operations, tactical surveillance, and law enforcement applications on fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters.

The TAGS sensor gimbal and electro-optical sensor system offers a carbon fiber, 4-axis gimbal design with fiber-optic gyroscope stabilization and extended environment operation to withstand the effects of high altitudes, extreme temperatures, and humidity. The TAGS controller offers geo-pointing and metadata output.

The TAGS is 17.5 inches across and weighs about 100 pounds with the sensor payload. Stabilization performance is a few microradians and feedback is a low-latency binary interface.

It is designed to meet the demanding requirements for airborne equipment, including DO-160. It has a high definition (HD) continuous-zoom midwave infrared (MWIR) imaging system with a visible camera and laser. IJK Controls also can customize the TAGS design by changing the sensor payloads.
