GIMBALS

COBRA™ Gimbal

The COBRA Gimbal is a 3DOF (az, el, thrust) pointing mechanism which implements the Canfield Joint carpal-wrist design to provide precise, full-hemisphere pointing capability. 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 Robotic Gimbal also provides continuous, singularity-free pointing without inducing cable twist/wrap – at the same time eliminating slip rings. 

Our unique Robotic Gimbal mechanism can be readily scaled and customized to fulfill your mission requirements. Below you can view our Gimbal products along with its features.
