Low SWaP-C

Designed for integration into UAS, the CM142 offers excellent performance for its size, weight and power.

Multi Sensor

The CM142 has a high definition electro-optical sensor with 30x continuous optical zoom and a LWIR sensor with 3x continuous optical zoom for improved target detection, recognition and identification.


Designed to perform in a range of weather conditions and environments, the CM142 has an IP66 rating to provide dust and weather resistance.

Standard Features

Standard Features

   Intelligent Object Tracking

Gather accurate information on a target moving at high speeds, while the platform is in motion with object tracking. This feature keeps the target in the centre of the frame until an alternative command is given, providing a consistent, solid and reliable object track.

  Onboard Video Encoding

All video is encoded onboard to minimize additional supporting hardware, reducing payload weight and allowing for longer flight times. Minimal hardware facilitates easier integration into UAS, aerostats and aircraft.


Enter geographic coordinates or point to a position on the map to maintain a consistent view of a location while the platform maneuvers. Gather geo-positioning data on a target for effective target acquisition.


 Onboard Video Processing

Real-time video enhancements are fully integrated inside every system to help the operator achieve more from each mission.



   Real-Time Video Stabilization

For a smoother video experience, real-time video stabilization corrects any jumpy and jittery movements. Real-time roll adjustments can also be automated to provide a steadier and clearer image.



Real-time navigation information is clearly displayed on the user interface (as optional overlays). This includes accurate acceleration, orientation, position and velocity data.
