Trillium Engineering is a leading developer of camera gimbal payloads designed to meet the requirements of Group 1, 2 and 3 UAS (unmanned aerial systems), as well as manned aircraft and military ground vehicles. 

DA is delighted to welcome Trillium on board as a supplier partner, and we will be highlighting their unique solutions and capabilities across our channels over the next 12 months.

We’ve just launched Trillium’s Defense Advancement supplier profile, which has been written and built by our team in collaboration with the company.

The profile showcases the company’s gimbals which deliver ultra-stable and high-resolution imagery, and are ideal for demanding ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance), target tracking, and weapons guidance applications.

Read on to find out more about Trillium’s products:


The HD25 is a lightweight and compact camera gimbal delivering 720p HD digital H.264-compliant video output with a 3x optical zoom visible camera and optional fixed focal length uncooled LWIR camera. With an onboard GPS-aided INS, the gimbal provides powerful real-time geopointing and geolocation capabilities for high-accuracy target tracking.


The HD40 is an advanced gimbal available as a 30x optical zoom EO-only configuration, or an EO/IR system with 10x optical zoom visible camera and a fixed focal length uncooled LWIR camera. An optional 850 nm night vision-compatible laser pointer can also be provided.


The HD45 is a robust and lightweight EO/IR gimbal available with a 5x optical zoom uncooled LWIR camera and either 5x or 10x optical zoom visible camera, as well as an 850 nm night vision-compatible laser pointer. The onboard IMU can be upgraded to deliver 1-degree accuracy for best-in-class geolocation and geopointing.


The HD55 is a state-of-the-art gimbal providing EO/IR or dual EO camera functionality and an 850nm laser pointer for precise and discreet pointing. The advanced built-in GPS-aided INS delivers accuracy of down to 0.5 degrees, enabling the best possible real-time geopointing and geolocation capabilities. Video output is compliant with both H.264 and H.265 compression.


The HD80 is a powerful UAV gimbal with best-in-class stability and an array of EO, MWIR or LWIR configuration options as well as a laser pointer and laser designator. Featuring cutting-edge embedded video processing capabilities such as scene and target tracking, it enables high-accuracy real-time location of both static and dynamic targets.


The HD80-AIM is designed to search vast areas of ocean efficiently and autonomously, massively reducing operator burden. It utilizes visible, NIR and MWIR imaging in combination with powerful AI processing to ensure accurate target identification under any lighting and sea state conditions.


The HD95 is a low-SWaP EO/IR gimbal specifically designed for the US Army’s Future Vertical Lift UAS program. Delivering unparalleled aerial reconnaissance and imaging capabilities, the gimbal features a global shutter EO camera and MWIR and SWIR thermal cameras, as well as a laser pointer, laser rangefinder, and STANAG 3733-compliant laser target designator.
