TrakkaCam Gyro-stabilized Multi-sensor Camera Systems
Trakka Systems’ world-class range of camera products is as sophisticated and reliable as our searchlights. TrakkaCam products are a range of cost-effective, ITAR-free, high performance gyro-stabilized single or dual LRU gimbal systems for Surveillance and Utility/Environmental Survey applications. Our internal multi-sensor payloads are modular and fully configurable to ensure adaptability and to provide the best match with mission needs. Our electro-optical sensors are augmented with video processing and sophisticated image enhancement allowing users to see through conditions of fog, haze and low-light or darkness. Our inbuilt software can also blend images to exploit features from different sensors providing imagery of activities that otherwise would go undetected. All of our systems can be interfaced with moving map systems and secure data links. These attributes enable operators and command centres to share mission critical information in real time whilst providing enhanced situational awareness via augmented reality overlays or pure synthetic views. Advanced aesthetic design and weatherproof construction allows the TrakkaCam to perform under the harshest environments. All of our systems are designed to meet DO-160 requirements with materials that offer the highest strength to weight advantages.

The 400mm, fully digital 4-axis gyro-stabilized platform has the most flexibility in terms of sensor and lens combinations. The SWE-400 LE can accommodate various payload options, including cooled thermal imaging sensors, HDTV, colour spotter scope and laser sensors. Video target tracking, geo-location, and various remote interface options are available.
Trakka Systems TC-300 is a compact, high performance, new generation single-LRU multi-sensor surveillance system setting new standards for innovative ergonomic and industrial design. The system comprises an innovative lightweight 300mm gimbal and has a total mass less than 19kg. It features high performance fully digital 4-axis gyro-stabilization, and a payload suite comprising MWIR thermal imager with continuous zoom (options for MCT and InSb), colour HDTV with continuous zoom and various laser sensors. A fully integrated IMU/GPS provides for Geo-Location and Moving Map integration, and the system features an advanced HD video engine, including Automatic Target Tracking, Scene Hold, Image Blending, Haze Reduction etc. The system is European and completely ITAR-free for maximum exportability.
TrakkaCam Integrated Optical Solutions
Detect, interrogate and resolve volatile situations from a safe stand-off distance.
Trakka’s Integrated Optronic Solutions (IOS) are a family of high-performance, integrated vision-enabling solutions built around Trakka’s gyrostabilised camera systems and searchlights. They are specifically designed for integration into armoured vehicles, and have been developed for advanced Situational Awareness, Route Clearance and IED Detection capability. Trakka’s IOS provide a decisive tactical advantage by delivering safe and superior stand-off ISR capability for the APC crew from within the vehicle, whether static or on the move. Trakka’s IOS can also be fitted to observation towers and other fixed installations to provide the same tactical advantages for force protection, border protection, coastal protection and protection of other critical national infrastructure (CNI).
TrakkaCam Utility and Environmental Survey Systems
The SWE-300 HDIR/Triple and SWE-400 QUAD multi-sensor imaging systems offer commercial users the capability to measure temperatures in real time, to image Corona discharges, and to collect high resolution video and still images from an airborne platform. The systems can be fully integrated with mapping systems and reporting software to deliver comprehensive fault reports to industry users. The products are manufactured in Sweden and they are completely ITAR-free and are widely exportable.
Typical applications include:
- Powerline asset inspection
- Pipeline inspection
- Right of Way (ROW) surveys
- Storm damage assessment
- Agriculture monitoring
- Environmental surveys
- Animal surveys
- Forest fire fighting and mapping
- Building heat loss measurement
The SWE-300 HDIR is a dual sensor system containing a high resolution, radiometric infrared camera and HDTV zoom camera. The 300mm fully digital 4-axis gyro-stabilized platform houses the high definition infrared camera that provides accurate, non-contact temperature measurements in real time while the HDTV provides exceptional colour images in full high definition detail. The SWE-300 HDIR can be equipped with an IMU/INS and Laser Range finder option that provides the geographical location of targets on the ground.
The SWE-300 TRIPLE is a tri-sensor system that contains the same radiometric infrared and HDTV zoom sensors as the SWE-300 HDIR, but is equipped additionally with a UV Corona detection camera. The radiometric infrared camera can easily identify power line problems where the fault is apparent as a change in temperature, mainly the case with internal defects which manifest as hot spots and thermal gradients. The UV camera is capable of detecting and producing video images of the energy generated by the corona discharge phenomenon. The camera is fully solar-blind and can visualize corona discharges indicating insulator faults.
The SWE-400 QUAD combines all of the sensors and features found in the SWE-300 series above, together with the addition of a megapixel digital frame camera in a 400mm fully digital 4-axis gyro-stabilized platform. The photo camera offers fast auto focusing and fast image storage for high-resolution fault reference capture. All stored photos are geo-referenced with location information.
