GIMBALS

COBRA™ Gimbal

The COBRA™ Gimbal is a space-qualified, 3DOF (az, el, thrust) pointing mechanism which offers unprecedented control in the most extreme environment. Implementing the Canfield Joint carpal-wrist design, COBRA provides full-hemisphere pointing capability for pinpoint accuracy. COBRA uses a precision-manufactured parallel linkage joint system to provide high repeatability and high precision with low size, weight and power (SWaP) impacts. Our Gimbals also provide continuous, singularity-free pointing without inducing cable twist/wrap – at the same time eliminating slip rings. 

Our unique Gimbal mechanism can be readily scaled and customized to fulfill your mission requirements. We offer multiple integrated antenna solutions for our customers. Below you can view our Gimbal products and features.
