Counter UAS Operator Assist

The CM202U Counter UAS (CUAS) System

Advanced algorithms to detect and track objects of interest in the air and on the ground.



The CM202U is a gyro-stabilized, multi-sensor gimbal specifically designed for counter-UAS operations.  The entire system is man-portable and robust and includes: object tracking capability, low power consumption, direct drive motors for accurate positioning, Static Target Detection Algorithm, and Moving Target Detector Algorithm.

Video Analytics


The CUAS-OA software uses two different threat detection algorithms:

  • The Moving Target Detection
    • Operates above and below the horizon line. The Moving Target Detector algorithm can detect moving people, vehicles, and other general motion below the horizon.
    • Picks up on subtle movement, that an unassisted operator cannot detect.
  • Static Target Detection
    • Detects small point features which are consistent with an sUAS.
    • Continues to operate when the gimbal is in motion.

Other Features


  • HD Object Tracking - Automatically steers the gimbal to keep the nominated tracked object center of the frame
  • Low Power Consumption: Low average draw of 55W is 30% of comparable systems
  • Man Portable: 8 inches in diameter and 12 lbs, 10 lbs lighter than comparable systems
  • MissionMap – Situational awareness software suite
  • MotionDSP – In-flight image enhancement and post-flight image software processing.
