For more than five decades, Southern Research has developed stabilized gimbals and fine pointing systems used in a range of military and aerospace applications. As a leading innovator in the field, our advances have led to the development of several specialized gimbal designs ranging from small lightweight missile seekers to large multi-axis turret systems. Southern Research is a provider of sophisticated pointing solutions for test and Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) applications. Our proven expertise has enabled us to maintain longstanding relationships with government and commercial clients who depend on our ability to develop forward-thinking, cutting-edge design solutions.
Southern Research offers expertise in designing and developing the following types of stabilized gimbals and fine pointing systems:
Southern Research also provides G2000 and GTB2E dynamically tuned gyros (DTGs) paired with our gyro electronics modules for use in extended temperature or harsh environments. We offer both custom-designed electronics modules and turnkey systems designed to operate on +/- 15 Vdc and/or +28 Vdc including our new micro-DTG electronics module. This compact design (approximately 2”x 2”x 1”) is ideal for gimbaled camera systems and other systems for which small size and low weight are critical factors.
