DST Control

DST Slider

DST CONTROL was founded in the late 80’s and is located in Linköping, SWEDEN.  The company started as a consultant company in the control system business and have developed control system to RUAG Space, NASA, SAAB, ELEKTA, FLIR SYSTEMS, etc.

Fields of expertise:

  • Model-based software & control systems design
  • Real-time systems programming
  • Electronic hardware design
  • Embedded software design
  • Mechatronic systems design

Based on unique experience, DST CONTROL has released a number of advanced in-house developed products. DST CONTROL’s main business today is as supplier of light-weight, high performance gyro-stabilized electro-optical systems with both EO and IR capabilities, and small light-weight thermal imagers. The “OTUS” gyro-stabilized electro-optical micro-gimbal is optimized for use in small & medium sized unmanned vehicles and small manned aircrafts. It is one of the smallest and lightest gimbals on the market, yet providing performance & functions found only in much larger units. It comes with a day-light camera and/or an un-cooled infrared camera combined with a laser range finder. OTUS provides unique optional functions such as geo-localization, automatic video tracking, video recording, everything integrated within the gimbal. The OTUS gimbals have no export restrictions, nor ITAR. As a trusted & established supplier of components & know-how for the unmanned vehicle industry for the last 20 years, DST has been involved in several national and international unmanned aerial vehicle projects.

otus-u135_3The OTUS-U135  gyro stabilized micro gimbalprovides outstanding performance in one of the smallest form factors available.  The two axis gimbal reach a new level of stabilization performance thanks to purpose-built high-bandwidth torque motors implementing active vibration attenuation. All electronics required for the advanced digital control fits within the unit shell. The user only have to connect an external power supply, a video monitor and a joystick, to have the system up and running.   A three dimensional micro-mechanical IMU and a laser range finder mounted directly on the optical bench, allows for advanced features like geo-location and geo-positioning, provided an external heading source is connected to the OTUS-U135.  The powerful digital servo controller of the OTUS-U135 is even capable of providing enough computational power to drive optional features like vehicle control and navigation.

THERMAL IMAGERS

2016-03-24_16-40-44SAITIS-640 is an uncooled microbolometer LWIR camera (amorphous silicon, spectral band 8-14 μm) with 640×480 pixels resolution. Unique features for the SAITIS-640 is its low weight and size (from 27mm x 27mm x 26mm) but also the minimum power requirements (1W).  The SAITIS-640 can be equipped with a wide range of optics and has maximum exportability even in full frame rate.
