Match Mission Needs

Choose the right level of motion control and stability for the platform with three modular configuration options and the ability to create a fully customized system.

Turret Drive Servo System TDSS overview

Configuration 1: The basic TDSS configuration is a hand drive that can mechanically move the turret in azimuth and the gun in elevation.
Configuration 2: A servo drive provides basic electromechanical aiming of the turret and the gun and a hand drive interface can be provided for backup. This system configuration includes rotary and/or linear drives, motor controllers, and optional hand controllers.
Configuration 3: This configuration includes everything in configuration 2 with the addition of gyroscopes for stabilized turret control.
Customized: We work in close collaboration with you to develop a completely customized solution based on your requirements. Even the actual drive design is adaptable to your turret requirements.

System Configuration Options

Within each system configuration you have the option to incrementally gain functionality through upgrades as the needs of your mission change. This means that while you have Configuration 2 installed, for example, you can easily step up to Configuration 3, a stabilized system, by adding gyroscopes, without the need to replace the existing hardware. If your mission demands fall outside of the pre-defined configurations listed, a completely customized system can be developed to your requirements.
