GE Intelligent Platforms has released the MIP3ES Miniature Image Stabilizer on August 16 at AUVSI Washington DC, complementing the recently-announced ADEPT3000 Miniature Video Tracker.
Like the ADEPT3000, the rugged MIP3ES meets the military/aerospace application demand in which size, weight and power (SWaP) are constrained.
GE Intelligent Platforms is a technology company and a global provider of software, hardware, services, and expertise in automation and embedded computing.
The MIP3ES measures only 34mm x 24mm – approximately the size of a microprocessor. It weighs around six grams, and consumes minimal power (approximately 1.5 watts) making it “ideal for deployment in cramped, harsh conditions such as are found in small unmanned aerial vehicles, video gimbals and man-portable devices,” according to GE Intelligent.
Despite its small size, the MIP3ES offers high performance stabilization of real-time video images with any standard definition analog video signal, GE Intelligent added.
It incorporates on-board serial links that allow it to interface to most platforms. It is also designed for easy configuration and device control with intuitive web-based software.
“The MIP3ES extends still further the broadening range of image processing and video processing solutions that GE can offer,” said Chris Jobling, Product Manager, GE Intelligent Platforms.
“All are characterized by outstanding price/performance, rugged construction and ease of implementation, allowing our customers to implement them in a wide range of environments and providing advanced system capabilities with faster deployment.”
