The Value of Integrated Stabilization Systems

Tanks and infantry fighting vehicles are often moving across very rough terrain at high speeds while engaging an enemy. For the safety of the personnel on board and the accuracy of the weapon systems on board, the turret aiming and stabilization systems on these platforms must enable steady and precise control in all conditions.

Designing a robust, reliable, and high-performance turret drive system from the ground up is an extremely ambitious undertaking. It requires very specific engineering expertise in each of the key components — rotary gear drives, linear drives, gyroscopes, motor controllers, and hand controllers — and how they interoperate. Getting the design right and ensuring the system undergoes adequate field testing adds significant time, cost, and risks to programs.
