The side looking camera of Sono-buoy launch UAV can be stabilized using a two axis system with limited travel, solid state gyros for feedback and torque motors. This technology is available on Hood Technology's existing AltiCam turrets. The new system would however fit in a 3x3 inch space, unlike the 7inch space for AltiCam. Two imagers, the Sony FCB-IX10 and the FLIR Omega are imagers that meet size and cost requirements. We also propose an outer roll stage to decouple UAV trajectory and imaging.
