Whether mounted on an armored vehicle, the deck of a ship or at the perimeter of a forward operating base, the system that controls the azimuth and elevation of a weapon station must survive the same conditions of weather, temperature, dust, vibration and shock as the personnel and equipment it’s used to protect. At the same time, it must be lightweight and low-profile to preserve weight requirements. Above all else, it must ensure reliably accurate positioning to engage moving targets, even if mounted to a vehicle in motion.

Lightweight & Accurate Solutions

For accuracy in highly dynamic conditions, targeting systems must continuously make precise adjustments—sometimes small, sometimes large—in response to input from the control system. Each adjustment requires a compact, light servo motor to accelerate the relatively large mass of the remote weapon station. The multi-axis torque and speed requirements are extreme, and this is a perfect application for the industry’s leading innovator and supplier of torque dense direct drive servo technologies - Kollmorgen.

Robust & Reliable Solutions

Survivability is just as important as accuracy. The positioning system needs to work exactly as specified, no matter what conditions are encountered in the field. You can rely on Kollmorgen to leverage our vast experience in incorporating corrosion-free materials, impervious seals and ruggedized construction to provide motion solutions that survive the harshest conditions, year after year.
