GE Dramatically Reduces Size, Weight, and Power Consumption With Rugged Miniature Image Stabilizer

GE Intelligent Platforms

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA August 16 2011 GE Intelligent Platforms today announced the MIP3ES Miniature Image Stabilizer at AUVSI (Washington DC, August 16 – 19). This product complements the recently-announced ADEPT3000 Miniature Video Tracker: like the ADEPT3000, the rugged MIP3ES is designed for demanding military/aerospace applications in which size, weight and power (SWaP) are highly constrained. The MIP3ES measures only 34mm x 24mm – approximately the size of a microprocessor – is light in weight at 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.

Despite its extremely small size, the MIP3ES offers high performance stabilization of real-time video images with any standard definition analog video signal. It incorporates on-board serial links allowing it to interface to most platforms and is 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.”
