Electro-Optical/Infrared (EO/IR) Systems play an increasing role in defense, security, and monitoring from aircraft, land vehicles and shipboard systems. These systems must provide smooth, error free movement in the azimuth and elevation axes. Mounted to a variety of platforms, many EO/IR systems are subject to the most extreme conditions imaginable. With Kollmorgen’s motor technology embedded, these systems have been operating successfully for over 30 years. When these critical systems need high-performance motion, today’s EO/IR OEMs rely on Kollmorgen.
Small & Powerful Solutions
Utilizing decades of experience, Kollmorgen provides motor technology that enables smooth, accurate, and stable motion to position image sensors and long-range detection systems. Kollmorgen’s frameless motor technology is optimized for torque-dense, yet lightweight solutions. These rugged motors are directly coupled to the internal workings of the EO/IR system to provide the visual integrity and stability needed by the user.
