Trillium Engineering is a leading developer of camera gimbal payloads specifically designed to meet the requirements of Group 1, 2 and 3 UAS (unmanned aerial systems), as well as manned aircraft and military ground vehicles. Delivering ultra-stable and high-resolution imagery, our gimbals are ideal for demanding ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance), target tracking, and weapons guidance applications.

visible and infrared imaging

Our cutting-edge visible and infrared imaging technologies have been incorporated into a variety of leading tactical drone platforms, including the Textron Systems Aerosonde in service with the U.S. Army, the Quantum-Systems Vector and the Martin UAV V-BAT. Our HD80 gimbal has also been integrated into both finalists for the U.S. Army Future Tactical Uncrewed Aircraft Systems (FTUAS) program.

State-of-the-art visible and thermal imaging for mission-critical applications

We provide a wide range of options to suit a diverse set of mission requirements, including visible, NIR, SWIR, MWIR and LWIR imaging, as well as laser target designators, rangefinders and pointers.

ISR camera gimbal payloads

Our gimbals are specifically designed to provide maximum performance in the lowest possible SWaP (size, weight and power) footprint, leaving room in the resource budget for other payloads and systems.

All Trillium gimbals feature powerful onboard video processing capabilities for immediate actionable intelligence, including high-definition object tracking, image stabilization, and H.264 or H.265 encoding. We have also integrated SightX’s real-time edge AI engine, enabling high-precision target detection, tracking and classification day or night without a human in the loop.
