CM202A | Aerial ISR & Target Acquisition


Lightweight Gyro-Stabilized Payload

For UAS and Aircraft



Multi Sensor



The CM202A is a low SWaP-C multi sensor imaging system for aerial intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance. Optimized with gyro-stabilization and onboard real-time video stabilization, the CM202A provides stable and accurate imagery for long and short range target detection, recognition and identification. Weighing just 7.7lb, the CM202A is the ideal sensor solution for fixed wing, multi rotor and rotary wing UAS; aerostats; and lightweight aircraft.

Day and Night Intelligence

Detect, recognize and identify a moving or static object at day or night with electro-optical (EO) and thermal (SWIR, MWIR or LWIR) imagery. The imagery can be viewed simultaneously with a picture-in-picture view using OPS-Warden software.

Optimized ISR

Identify an object accurately and make informed decisions with 30x daylight and 13x MWIR continuous optical zoom. Detect and track multiple targets at once by tagging up to 5 moving objects within the FOV.

Improved Video Experience

The CM202A contains a high precision motor to reduce platform vibration, providing smooth and clear imagery at optimum zoom. Direct drive keeps the target in the centre of the frame by responding quickly to platform disturbances.

Customized for the Mission

Choose between a wide range of sensor configurations to meet the exact payload requirements.

Multiple Encoding

Dual streaming provides local and remote recordings, which can be transmitted in different formats and compressed to different qualities using less CPU and a lower bandwidth.

Simple Integration

Ideal for all manned and unmanned aerial systems, the CM202A is a flexible camera payload that can be mounted on the top, nose or belly of a vehicle. Simple hook-up plug and play provides quick deployment.

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.
