The COBRA Gimbal is a 3DOF (az, el, thrust) pointing mechanism that implements the Canfield Joint carpal-wrist design to provide precise, full-hemisphere pointing capability. The COBRA uses a precision-manufactured parellel linkage joint system to provide high repeatability and high precision with low size, weight and power (SWaP) impacts. Our Gimbal also provides continuous, singularity-free pointing without inducing cable twist/wrap – at the same time eliminating slip rings.
Our COBRA Gimbal mechanism can be readily scaled and customized to fulfill your mission requirements. Below you can view our Gimbal products along with its features.
